If you’re a landowner, having travellers arrive on your property out of the blue can be a highly stressful experience. You want to evict them quickly to reclaim the land that is yours but you may not know how to go about this in the right way. We’ve put together this guide to show you how to evict travellers from your private land legally and efficiently.
Evicting Travellers From Your Private Land
There is a common misconception that you need a court order to evict travellers from private land. You might choose to go down the court route and obtain a possession order, but this is costly and time-consuming.
The quickest way for you to evict travellers from your land is to use Common Law. As specialists in evictions, we can assist you with this process very speedily – We often clear the site on the same day that we are instructed.
We’ll start by serving the travellers with an eviction notice, which typically gives them until the following day to leave the site of their own accord. Our response team will also carry out a risk assessment when they visit the site to serve the notice, so we know what to expect should an eviction be required.
Usually this will be enough to move the group on, and you can get your land back with very little stress. However, if they still haven’t left, we may need to carry out a forced eviction.
The Quicker, The Better
The longer that a traveller group remains on your land, the more problems you will likely face. This can be costly for a business, especially if it means that customers are staying away!
If the travellers have been served with an eviction notice and not left (or you require them evicting immediately) we will use Common Law to move them. This enables private landowners to instruct a bailiff to retake possession of the land.
You do not need to go to court to evict travellers. Carrying out an eviction this way reduces the time taken and the costs involved.
