Traveller evictions law UK – your rights

Traveller evictions can be a very stressful event and requires a knowledge of the law to achieve. As a UK landowner, specifically in England and Wales, there are trespassing laws in place. They are designed to protect you and your property when removing travellers from private land. The laws are designed to protect the owner from the unauthorised entry and occupation of unwanted travellers on your private land.

If you own private land and are experiencing problems with trespassing or travellers, our professional bailiffs (now known as enforcement agents) are here to help you uphold these legal rights, for the fast removal of both people and vehicles. Our in-depth knowledge of the law and how to deal with traveller evictions, means that you to reclaim your land and minimise the damage and mess that is often inherent with gypsy evictions, with the minimum of stress and hassle.

Common law traveller eviction for fast action

If you have travellers on your private land without granting them permission and you want them removed, it’s important to act fast in order to reduce the impact of their encampment. Because common law allows you to instruct us without going through the courts, you could be free of your unwelcome visitors as quickly as within 24 hours.

We work with two main priorities in mind: to act in accordance with UK trespassing laws at all times and to ensure that we reclaim your land as soon as possible. To benefit from our professional and reliable traveller eviction services and highly competitive rates, please call us on 01636 42868 or instruct us now.

 

Unauthorised encampments – how trespassing laws apply to you

Under the Unauthorised Encampment Law of the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office, there several powers that can be exercised under different circumstance – these can be applied by yourself as the landowner, the police, or an authorised bailiff/enforcement officer who has been certified by the courts to act as an agent or representative. The laws in the UK are as follows:

• Common law – enforceable by the landowner/bailiffs, no court involvement necessary

• Part 55 Civil Procedures Rules – enforceable by the landowner/bailiffs but requires the involvement of the civil court

• Sections 77-78 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 – applicable to local authorities and enforceable by their officers or their bailiffs with court involvement if the trespassers don’t leave when instructed

• Sections 61-62 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 – only enforceable by the police, without court involvement

• Section 62 A-E Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 – only enforceable by the police, without court involvement, and where an alternative site is available

Once again I have to write to congratulate you on the swiftness of your services.

I put the abandoned vehicle legal sign that you gave me on an old type Audi which had been just left on our land, and it was quite interesting having several people watching me doing it, but no one came forward to ask me what I was doing. Obviously the word got around and the vehicle was removed within 48 hours. This has saved me having to pay to get it removed and recycled, so a big thank you to strikes B2B Debt Collection agency

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

Just want to say thank you to Strikes Collection Services for your help with our unwanted visitors, it was much appreciated.

Zoe Schager, Senior Customer Service Representative

I would just like to say a massive thank you to you and your staff for removing the unwanted travellers from our car park in Peterborough.

To have them moved on without them even staying a night is absolutely great and our tenants on the business park are very grateful. If I had the same service through the courts this would have taken three weeks, and I am sure it would have cost us at least double, especially with the clear up afterwards.

Ann Rumsby, Dencora

I will certainly keep you in mind for future work as was thoroughly impressed with your service

Jacqueline, Associate, LLP

I have known and worked in conjunction with Strikes for sometime now. Chris Bane and his team are reliable and always on hand to assist whenever that may be.

I would not hesitate in recommending Strikes services.

Peter Harling, Insolvency, Litigation, Debt Recovery and Company Restoration solicitor at Chadwick Lawrence LLP Solicitors, West Yorkshire

This is the first time we have used a debt collection agency.

I would have no hesitation in using Strikes Collection Services again and recommending them to others.

I had been chasing the outstanding debt myself for almost six months but Chris managed to reclaim the outstanding monies within a matter of days. Chris was very professional and took away all the stress. I only wish I had contacted Strikes earlier!

Katie, Credit Control Manager, Manchester Recruitment Agency

We, as a company, have used Chris for a number of year. Always on hand to advise us and very professional in dealing with our lessees.

Billy Wilson, Senior Credit Controller, Heineken UK

Always can be counted on for a fast, efficient and reliable service.

Clare, Solicitor, Real Estate Dispute Resolution

We instructed Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs, to evict some travellers from our car park at the John Smith’s Stadium here in Huddersfield. This was done in a very professional manner and to a time scale that meant there was no disruption to our business, tenants or customers. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Chris Bane, of Strikes Bailiffs to anyone needing the services of a Bailiff.

Philip. J .Armitage MBIFM, Operations Manager, Kirklees Stadium Development Limited, The John Smith’s Stadium

We will certainly be using you again. Thank you for a fast and pleasant service.
