Commercial Squatters and Property Repossession Services

If your property is currently occupied by commercial squatters, you, as the property owner, have the right to obtain peaceful possession of the property from a person or persons unknown occupying a commercial premises. You can also evict someone who has trespassed onto the site that does not have permission to be there. Able Investigations’ certificated enforcement officers can help you repossess your property, with diligence and urgency.

Quick and legal evictions

In many cases, there is no need for a court order to evict squatters from a commercial property. As long as the enforcement officer can gain access to the property without being accosted by one of squatters then the enforcement officer can legally evict providing that no more than reasonable force is used. We would normally request a Police presence to ensure that no breach of the peace occurs.

We have a long and successful track record of being able to acquire peaceful repossession of commercial properties both quickly and efficiently. Our team are experienced in removing commercial squatters from properties across England & Wales.

If you have an immediate requirement, we can help you as a matter of urgency.
