Due to the housing critical situation in the UK, there has been an increase in the number of unauthorised traveller encampments in Warwickshire.
The limited authorised camping sites in Warwickshire have contributed to a high rise of travellers camping on unauthorised spaces in Rugby, Royal Leamington Spa, or Nuneaton including playgrounds and parking lots.
According to the figures given by the government, a 17% rise has been witnessed in Warwickshire in the number of nomads on unauthorised land not owned by travellers from 2016-2017.
But between 2010 and 2017, there was only a 2% rise in socially rented plots in Warwickshire.
Local authorities and landlords in Warwickshire who want to take possession of their property and remove travellers have two available options in Nuneaton, Royal Leamington Spa, or Rugby.
The first option is to evict travellers using common law in Warwickshire.
Under common law, Warwickshire landowners have the power to remove travellers from their property in Warwickshire and are allowed to use force if required.
Enforcement agents typically perform evictions in Warwickshire using common law.
These Denbigh Franks agents will give the trespassing traveller 24 hours to vacate the property in Warwickshire through a notice.
After the 24-hour deadline expires and the traveller has not vacated the site in Rugby, Royal Leamington Spa, or Nuneaton, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agent will be back with equipment and if they feel the need police can also be called to remove the Travellers who are still at the sight.
Eviction by common law in Warwickshire comes with certain benefits.
For a start, the Warwickshire eviction will be done swiftly without delay.
A removal under common law can be executed within 24 hours in many cases; this means there is a shorter time for damage to the property or land in Warwickshire and reduce the chances for fly-tipping.
The second option is to Obtain a Write of Possession for local authorities and land owners in Warwickshire.
Getting an order of possession is the first step to evicting in Warwickshire under a writ of possession.
The warrant of ownership is rendered against'' persons unknown'' in interacting with travellers and squatters in Nuneaton, Rugby, or Royal Leamington Spa.
The claimant can transfer the order to the High Court once they have obtained the order for possession in Warwickshire and the Denbigh Franks high court enforcement officer will then use the authority to evict the travellers.
The key advantage of using a writ of possession in Warwickshire which is transferred to the High Court is that serving a notice is not required and the Denbigh Franks HCEO takes the decision, as determined by the situation.
This is especially important when handling travellers in Warwickshire because the lack of notice removes any risk of resistance to removal from the property, as well as damage or theft on the property in Warwickshire.
There are several things local authorities and landowners in Warwickshire can do to stop these situations from arising, as prevention is always better when dealing with an eviction in Nuneaton, Rugby, or Royal Leamington Spa and the potential time and money involved.
For instance, you can put fences and gates around your property, and you can equally erect a big billboard to warn off potential trespassers from gaining access to your property as unwanted visitors can't bypass these structures to gain unauthorized access to your property in Warwickshire.
Another great way to secure an area of land from travellers in Warwickshire is to put embankments, earth bunds and trenches.
