Aside from crisis of housing around the UK, travellers have only a few certified sites in Worcester to depend on.
Because of this factor, an increase in the number of travellers in Worcester is observed setting up on unauthorized campsites in Bransford, Norton, or Hallo which include car parks as well as playing grounds.
Governmental statistics suggest that there was a 17% rise in camping on unauthorized grounds in Worcester from 2016 to 2017.
Between 2010 and 2017 there was just a two percent rise in socially rented places in Worcestershire.
In order to evict the travellers and get the possession of land back in Bransford, Norton, or Hallo, landowners and local authorities in Worcestershire have 2 options.
You can take advantage of the common law to evict them in Worcestershire.
Under common law, the Worcester land owners can use the reasonable force to evict the travellers from their Worcestershire land as they have the rights to remove them from their property.
Evictions of travellers under common law in Worcester are often carried out by enforcement agents.
The Denbigh Franks enforcement agents must issue a 24-hour notice to vacate the location in Worcester to the passengers.
In case a traveller declines to vacate the premise in Bransford, Hallo, or Norton within the agreed time of 24 hours, Denbigh Franks enforcers may return with their tools and possibly accompanied by police if necessary to evict the available traveller forcefully.
There are many advantages for using a common law eviction in Worcestershire.
The main one being the speedy manner a tourist is evicted in Worcester.
With a common law eviction, travellers can be removed from the property in Worcester in a period of 24 hours which results in less destruction of property and fly-tipping.
The other alternative landlords and local government in Worcestershire have is to get a writ of possession.
In this case, the first thing to do is to get an order of possession in Worcester.
The order of possession is made against unknown persons when you're dealing with squatters and travellers in Hallo, Norton, or Bransford.
The claimant can transfer the order to the High Court once they have obtained the order for possession in Worcester and the Denbigh Franks high court enforcement officer will then use the authority to evict the travellers.
The most significant benefit to using a writ of possessions in Worcestershire is that it does not require given notice, as the HCEO from Denbigh Franks will determine whether to do so.
This technique is advantageous to property owners considering that the squatters or travellers in Worcester are found off balance and it reduces their chances of resisting evacuation, damaging property or thieving in Worcestershire.
Avoiding the occurrence of these types of situations in the first instance is always better than dealing with eviction in Hallo, Bransford, or Norton and the possible money, time and effort involved, so there are many things local authorities and property owners in Worcestershire can do to avoid the occurrence of these situations.
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 Worcester.
Embankments, earth bunds and trenches can also be used to secure the land in Worcester from unwanted visitors.
