Your Right To Evict Trespassers

As a land or property owner, it can be difficult to understand the relevant laws and legislation in place to protect your land from unauthorised trespassers. The changes in the law since the advent of the coronavirus pandemic make this only more complex. Clearway is always available to consult on the most appropriate eviction methods and help you understand your rights, all of which are laid out in the following powers and regulations:

Common-Law Power

This rule is most often used to evict unwanted travellers or any other group of trespassers from a site and does not require a formal court order. Reasonable notice must be given, which is typically one calendar day, and our Certificated Enforcement Agents enforce the eviction.

There is no penalty for returning trespassers, but using Common Law Power is a fast and effective way to perform an immediate eviction when time is of the essence.

Manned Guarding

Part 55 Civil Procedures Rules

Landowner rules allow you to seek a court order to evict illegal trespassers. This process does carry the costs of engaging solicitors, and paying legal fees, and is, therefore, a more prolonged process given that proceedings are subject to court schedules. In this case, when a court order has been issued, the eviction is enforced by County Court bailiffs or a High Court Enforcement Officer.

Sections 61-62 Criminal Justice & Public Order Act 1994

This law is used by police forces to evict travellers and applies to any land apart from highways. Police may use this process to remove any identified individuals, as well as vehicles illegally occupying private property. To enact this law, more than two trespassers must be present, and there is no court order requirement before the eviction can be carried out.

Sections 77-78 Criminal Justice & Public Order Act 1994

The local authority acts are used to remove unauthorised encampments and apply to any land within the boundaries of the local authority area.

This process is used where individuals can be identified and is enforced by our Certificated Enforcement Agents.

With this option, there is no requirement for court processes, although if trespassers do not leave as instructed, further court action may be required.

Should a trespasser be evicted in this way and return within three months, criminal sanctions apply.
