In Warrington, there's a shortage of authorised sites for travellers because of the housing crisis in the UK.
This lack of sufficient authorized sites in Warrington cause travellers to camp in unauthorised grounds instead in Runcorn, Golborne, or Altrincham, like parking lots and playing fields.
According to the figures given by the government, a 17% rise has been witnessed in Warrington in the number of nomads on unauthorised land not owned by travellers from 2016-2017.
On the other hand there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in Cheshire between 2010 to 2017.
Cheshire landowners and local authorities have two ways to reclaim land ownership and expel visitors in Runcorn, Altrincham, or Golborne.
The first option is to use the common law for their eviction in Cheshire.
Common law states that landowners in Warrington have the jurisdiction to remove travellers from their piece of land in Cheshire and they can use some reasonable force if necessary.
Enforce agents are on the ground to assist you in Warrington with this type of eviction.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement officers will serve a notice that gives the travellers 1 day to leave the Warrington site.
Assuming the travellers have not vacated the site in Altrincham, Golborne, or Runcorn within the specified period, Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will come back with equipment and possibly the police if need be, to evict any traveller still camping on the land.
Using the common law in Cheshire offers tons of benefits.
The largest benefit is the speed at which the eviction in Warrington can be done.
In many situations, a common law eviction will take place within 24 hours, which ensures that there is less opportunity to cause damage to the land or property in Warrington and reduces the possibility of flipping the fly.
The other option for Cheshire local authorities and landowners is to obtain a writ of possession.
Getting a possession order is the first step when an eviction in Warrington is to be done with a writ of possession.
Order of possession is made out to persons unknown against the travellers or squatters in Runcorn, Altrincham, or Golborne.
Next, in Warrington the order would be transferred to the High Court from where it would be enforced by a High Court Enforcement Office (HCEO) from Denbigh Franks.
The main advantage of using a possessions writ and transferring to High Court the order in Cheshire is that notice is not necessarily given, as the Denbigh Franks HCEO will decide it depending on the situation, that either to give the notice or not.
This method is beneficial to landowners because the Warrington travellers or squatters are caught off guard and it minimizes the chances for resisting to vacate, stealing or destroying the property in Cheshire.
It is usually better to take preventive measures to avoid the occurrence of these incidents when handling an eviction in Runcorn, Golborne, or Altrincham and the possible money and time that may be wasted so there are a few things that can be done by local authorities and land owners in Cheshire to avoid the occurrence of these situations.
The best way to stop the unauthorized persons from entering land in Warrington is to put fences and gates around the land and you can also prevent unauthorized access by installing large bollards at entrances.
Another great way of securing an area of land in Warrington from unauthorized persons is to use embankments, trenches, and earth bunds.
