In addition to the ongoing housing crisis in the UK, the number of accredited sites in Widnes for travellers to settle on are also limited.
Due to this, the increased numbers of caravans packed on unauthorized land in Widnes such as playing fields, and car parks has been observed in Allerton, Widnes, or Hale Bank.
According to the Government's statistics, the number of caravans in Widnes on unauthorized plots has increased by 17% from 2016-17.
Also, for socially leased land in Cheshire, there has been a meek 2% rise from 2010 - 2017.
Property owners and local authorities in Cheshire have 2 options when looking to repossess land and evict travellers in Allerton, Hale Bank, or Widnes.
First of all, you can vacate them using the common law in Cheshire.
Under the common law, Widnes landowners are allowed to use the authority if required and evict travellers from their land in Cheshire rightfully and lawfully.
Such Evictions in Widnes are conducted by enforcement agents.
Enforcement Agents from Denbigh Franks usually give a notice that allows the travellers 24 hours to leave the Widnes property.
If after 24-hour, the travellers did not leave the site in Widnes, Hale Bank, or Allerton, then the Denbigh Franks enforcement agents will return with police to remove any travellers who remain.
There are many advantages for using a common law eviction in Cheshire.
One of which is the speedy removal of the Widnes traveller from the premises.
In a lot of instances eviction carried out under the common law can be carried out within one day, amplifying there is less time for possible damage to the land or property in Widnes and therefore reducing fly tipping chances.
Another option for both local authorities and landowners in Cheshire is to get the writ of possession.
Receiving an order of occupancy is the first move to evicting under a custody warrant in Widnes.
The order is made against "Persons Unknown" when dealing with squatters or travellers in Allerton, Widnes, or Hale Bank.
When the order of ownership has been granted in Widnes, you can go on and forward it to the High Court, which is then imposed by the (HCEO) High Court Enforcement Officer of Denbigh Franks.
The benefit of transferring up the writ of possessions to the High Court in Cheshire is that the High Court Officer from Denbigh Franks decides the right way to enforce the order.
This is specifically important when dealing with travellers in Widnes as the surprise aspect takes away any chance to vandalize property, steal from the premise, or for when there is expected resistance in Cheshire.
Preventing such situations from occurring in the first place is always preferable to dealing with an eviction in Widnes, Hale Bank, or Allerton, and the potential time and money involved, so there are several things that Cheshire landowners and local authorities can do to prevent these situations from occurring.
Having fencing and gates around the field and having large bollards at thresholds is a perfect way to stop unwanted people from entering the property in Widnes.
Other preventive measures include securing your property in Widnes with embankment as well as trenches and earth bunds.
