If your land has become illegally occupied by travellers or squatters, our Certificated Enforcement Officers can help. As experts in traveller evictions, we can help you repossess your land quickly, while complying with the law. As a landowner, you have a common law right to remove trespassers from your property – however this is not something the police can help with, as it is a civil matter. traveller-eviction

In most cases, we can usually clear land the same day of serving an eviction notice, or work to an agenda to suit your needs. Don’t wait for the travellers to settle in, cause damage, or bring additional people to their encampment. Act now and we can get started straight away.

Traveller Evictions - Get in Touch

Quick and legal eviction process

We offer a fully legal process that helps you avoid time-consuming court proceedings, allowing normal business operation to resume with minimal disruption.

For private landowners, we typically act under Common Law which allows us to reclaim your land without going through court. Our nationwide team will serve an eviction notice to the trespassers and normally have the land cleared the same day of your instruction. Our Certificated Enforcement officers are trained in Conflict Management should it be needed, to ensure any situation can be quickly resolved and the land returned.

For larger scale operations, we have a dedicated Public Order Enforcement Team, who are specially trained in dealing with contentious issues, always on hand for your peace of mind.

We also operate on behalf of local authorities utilising Section 77 of the Local Authorities Act, or CPR Rule 55, Writ of Possession.

Expert Traveller Eviction service

Our clients range from holiday parks and stores, to local authorities and private land. Whatever the scale or location of the eviction needed, Able Enforcements provides a reliable traveller eviction service utilising a team of experienced Certificated Enforcement Officers. The team always remain professional, operating within the law, enlisting the assistance of police officers if necessary. We are a leading authority in our field, gaining local and national media attention as the industry experts.

 

If you would like assistance with travellers, squatters, trespassers, or even protesters throughout England and Wales, without having to go through complex legal proceedings, please contact a member of our team by calling us on 0845 370 7401. We do not use an automatic system, so you will immediately be put through to a member of staff. Alternatively, why not drop us an email and we will get in touch at a time that suits you.

Protect yourself as well as your land

Many landowners are concerned about violence and aggression when it comes to evicting traveller, Gypsies, or other squatters. The law allows for ‘no more force than is reasonably necessary’, but determining the level of reasonable force is difficult, and excessive force could lead to a claim being made against the landowner.

We always recommend that you opt for professional traveller evictions, with Certified Enforcement Officers. Not only are they trained and able to identify what constitutes reasonable force, they are also able to handle a situation with violent or aggressive squatters. If the situation escalates, knowing you have trained officers on site makes the whole process less stressful for you. As some encampments can include dozens of travellers, as well as their vehicles and animals, having professionals on your side tends to be safer. Our job is to keep the situation under control while we legally and effectively remove the travellers from your property.

Post-eviction advice

Once you have been through the eviction process, you need to protect your property from the travellers coming back and setting up another encampment. We have extensive experience in what happens immediately after an eviction, and can support you with expert advice on measures such as embankments, fencing, entry restrictions, and gating, among other options.
