Traveller Eviction in London

London is one of the world’s biggest and most enticing cities and draws people in from all four corners of the country and the world. However, many London landlords frequently experience problems with travellers and trespassing. At Collect My Debt we are regularly instructed to help our clients deal with problems involving travellers.

Help with removing travellers in the capital

We can be counted on to provide swift solutions to problems related to travellers. We can often help you remove travellers from your land in London without needing a court order or solicitors’ instructions. Private landlords are able to take advantage of the ancient remedy of Common Law when they need to remove trespassers. Although it may be possible to remove the trespassers yourself, this can be incredibly risky and you could find yourself in legal trouble and could even be hurt during the process.

Safe and lawful evictions

At Collect My Debt, we can carry out your eviction safely and legally, in line with health and safety procedures. We can carry out risk assessments before the eviction and restore harmony with our considerable resources and manpower. From time to time, we do need to liaise with the police to avoid a breach of the peace. We may be advised to delay the eviction after the authorities have assessed the scenario. If you ignore police advice, people could be injured and property may be damaged.

Two processes on offer

We are able to offer two processes for eviction – a 24-hour self-help notice, where we will ask trespassers to leave your site before forceful action is taken. We can also serve a 2-4 hour self-help eviction notice and remain on site to take charge of packing and vacation. It may not be possible to clear within four hours, and our Certificated Enforcement Agents could need up to 12 hours to complete the eviction using tow trucks.

Avoid legal costs

We have vast experience when it comes to removing travellers from private land whilst preventing a breach of the peace. We provide an affordable and quick alternative to obtaining a court order, which can take up to 21 days and leave you with up to £5,500 to pay in legal and enforcement costs. Action can be taken on the very same day we receive your instruction. It’s worth noting that trespassers do sometimes leave sites immediately once notices are served. If your trespassers are co-operative, you will only need to pay for our attendance and the cost of the notice being served.

Reports and updates

When we arrive on your site, we will compile a comprehensive detailed report, adding as much relevant information as we possibly can. At this point, we will decide whether backup services are needed. We will send the report to you via e-mail and provide you with updates in real-time. We can also provide you with in-depth advice on prevent trespass in future, offering details on boosting site security. We are waiting to hear from you right now if you need help with traveller eviction in London, so call us today on 0800 612 5161 or send a message to You can also get in touch through the website.
