Land owners and those in possession of large open commercial spaces can find themselves falling victim to unwelcome visitors occupying their land. Sadly, the traveller community are sometimes notorious for forcing entry onto land they perceive to be a good spot for them to inhabit. Before you know it, your field, car park or open space is overrun by unwanted guests.
The problem is further exacerbated by the disgusting volumes of litter and waste that builds up on the site. And the responsibility of disposing of it (when and if they leave) is yours entirely.
At MEC Security we’re fully qualified and highly-proficient security and eviction specialists.
We have years of experience when it comes to quick and efficient removal of travellers, squatters and trespassers. We can even install advanced deterrent and security measures afterwards to prevent these occurrences from happening again.
Regardless of whether it’s private or public land, it’s no task for our fully-trained security personnel to handle the swift eviction of uninvited guests. We make full use of Magistrates Warrants and Orders of Possession to ensure that we’re always operating within the parameters of the law when removing delinquents.
If you’re reluctant to take immediate enforcive action, then we can attempt a more diplomatic approach with the use of legal letters and even visit the site when court action is taking place should it come to that.
From our past experience, we know that some illegal squatters and trespassers attempt to remain steadfast and unyielding by quoting section 6 of the Criminal Law Act 1977. It’s refreshing to see people with a knowledge of the law, but sadly for them we know it better and this “loophole” is easily circumvented as it is not wholly applicable to those who are occupying an area in which they have no claim nor authority.
Let’s be clear, we’re not a team of heavies who aggressively intimidate unauthorised occupants or forcibly remove them. We are master tacticians who employ the use of our broad and accurate understanding of the law to manage a professional eviction.
We know how to legally access land even when the undesirable occupants have created obstruction methods such as padlocks, chains or stationary vehicles.
There are no insurmountable problems when you hire MEC Security -- we can overcome any challenge to achieve a swift and permanent eviction.
At MEC Security, we know exactly how stressful it is to have trespassers on your property and also how helpless it can make you feel when you fail to get any co-operation or support from the local authorities or police. With us however, we treat you as a priority from start to finish. We begin by taking the time to fully understand your situation and any prior removal or negotiation efforts that have been made. We then work with you to devise the most effective solution for you personally -- one that draws on our years of expertise and fully removes the burden from you.
We can oversee the entire operation, allowing you to focus on other matters of priority whilst we work to reclaim your land.
If you’re a landlord who has a currently unoccupied property or you’ve inherited a home where plans are yet to be made for it, then there’s always a chance it could be targeted by squatters and those looking to vandalise and damage it.
In every instance, you’re going to want these people removed swiftly and effectively so that any damage is minimised and extensive repair costs are avoided. MEC security are experts in the removal of squatters in residential properties and are often called upon for our same-day eviction service, allowing us to strike before the issue spirals out of control.
Similarly, if you own or manage commercial property or land, you will be completely aware of the risks involved in leaving the land without supervision for any length of time. Properties can be at risk of a break-in, theft or vandalism and illegal occupation.
The process of evicting squatters from your non-residential premises can be stressful, complicated and challenging. Some squatters are well-organised and are known to take advantage of groups set up to remind them of their rights, such as the Advisory Service For Squatters.
MEC Security specialises in assisting commercial and private property owners with the eviction of squatters and the provision of vacant possession. We have and continue to work closely with lawyers and the police to provide a swift and professional squatter eviction service. High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs) enable us to enforce your County Court Order by transferring it to the High Court for enforcement purposes.
It’s understandable for land owners and landlords to feel apprehensive about confronting those who are living on their premises without their permission. We know that in a lot of cases, what starts as a civil discussion quickly escalates into being a heated and sometimes aggressive verbal exchange; in more severe instances it can even result in a physical altercation.
Our main aim is always to reduce the risk of things turning ugly. All of our security specialists are fully trained in the most advanced methods of behavioural management, aggression control, crowd pacification and diffusing antagonistic scenarios.
We also have demonstrable experience of court proceedings and an acute understanding of the legalities that surround the eviction processes in the UK. In short, we can help you with every single aspect of your trespass and unauthorised occupation dilemma.
Some of the areas we regularly evict from include:
Squatters, unscrupulous travellers and trespassers all have one thing in common -- they’re opportunists.
They start by identifying a vulnerability and then quickly take advantage of it. Once they have breached entry their advancement in occupying as much space as possible in the shortest amount of time is almost impressive. And they keep expanding and growing until they’ve fully embedded themselves into a building or site, rooting themselves in and making the removal task even more difficult.
This is why it’s so important to act immediately. The longer you delay taking action, the much larger the eviction operation will be, not to mention the increase in damage and disruption to your land or building.
MEC know the importance of decisive action and so we will respond the moment you contact us. We can reach the site on the same day you raise your concern with us and begin the eviction procedures immediately. We will also work collaboratively with local police where necessary and required.
Once MEC security have in our possession your High Court Writ of Possession, we can quickly and efficiently evict squatters from your land or property. We can also assist you with the clearance and protection of the property.
We can do so by clearing your property of any needles, sharps, rubbish and waste material, changing locks and installing steel window security screens and doors if required.
Acting fast is crucial with eviction to protect your property from further damage or theft.
Time and time again we have seen situations go from bad to worse where immediate action has not been taken. Some problems you need to nip in the bud and eviction unquestionably falls within that category. The surefire way to guarantee a successful and hassle-free eviction is to strike while the iron is hot.
If you’re having issues with squatters, trespassers and travellers, then call us today and our enforcement team can commence proceedings as a matter of urgency.
