The expressions ' trespasser ' and ' squatter ' have the same meaning in Law and are interchangeable. A trespasser (squatter) is a party who enters onto, or remains on, property without lawful authority or permission from the party with an immediate right to occupation of that property.
Possession can be obtained in relation to all forms of commercial premises/private land without a court order, providing; the occupier is not a residential tenant (or a former residential tenant) of any part of the building and no force is required to obtain entry into the premises. With outside areas of premises, even with trespassers, where trespassers are in occupation of any external areas (e.g. car parks, fields etc) reasonable force can be used.
Initially we serve a Legal Notice under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977 or Common Law to the Trespasser(s) telling them that they need to leave the site.
We then re-attend the site within 24 hours and "Evict" the trespassers. We are able to utilise removal vehicles, tractor units and clean up crews if required – please let us know your requirements when calling.
It is as simple as that - Quick , Legal and Effective
We will agree a fixed fee in advance following receipt of your instructions.
