Removing unwanted trespassers in Bristol

Your land is yours to have who and what you want on it. This means anyone who is on your land without your permission is doing so illegally - and by law this is trespassing.

Being fully aware of the implications of illegal siting, our Quality Bailiffs team in Bristol have the skills to deal with and resolve all forms of trespassing.

Supporting the eviction process of Bristol-based travellers

Are there unauthorised travellers encamped on your land in Bristol?

Travellers parking on private land

Unauthorised encampment can be one of the most worrying aspects for land owners. This is especially so when it is on land that isn’t occupied heavily by buildings. Issues caused as a result can be financially-damaging, even from a small number of travellers.

But as a landowner you have a common law right to remove unwanted travellers or trespassers. We appreciate the eviction process can be daunting, so we use our skill set to assist you in regaining possession of your land quickly and effectively.

Covering the entire process, we start by serving the necessary notices and finish with on-site eviction. With this, we work closely with the Avon & Somerset police constabulary for a swift process.

Furthermore, knowing trespassing can be a regular occurrence, after returning the site to you, we can work with you to ensure you reduce the likelihood of trespassing happening and becoming a problem once more.

Evicting Bristol-based squatters and protestors

Whilst a protest can be peaceful, if it takes place on private property without permission, the protestors can be legally evicted


Protests by their nature aren’t illegal. The vast majority that take place in Bristol are peaceful and on public land, too.

But some take place unexpectedly and on private land. These protests can sometimes produce squatters, and should they decide to not move on, our team of enforcement agents can quickly remove them from your land.

Being trained eviction bailiffs with experience in dealing with difficult entries, lock-ins, emergency first aid and conflict management, our Specialist Enforcement Response Team serve writs of possession against the parties and soon ensure your land or property is back in your possession.

Horse and animal removal in Bristol

Although harmless in some respects, the siting of a horse or other animal by a third party on your land can produce costly damages

unauthorised horses grazing

The topic of trespassing on private property is often thought to be related purely to humans, but it can just as easily be animals, usually horses.

The Control of Horses Act 2015 provides the ability to detain and remove any such horses from your Bristol property, and it can be a quick process - our agents will serve a 96 hour notice, and if the horses aren’t removed within this period (a timeframe when we’ll also ensure their health is checked and food and water is provided if needed), the team arranges for the horses to be removed.

Alerting the appropriate authorities, our Bristol-based Quality Bailiffs team take full control of the process and produce a positive result in a matter of days.

Using our Bristol-based bailiff services to recover your assets

An option suitable for both commercial and personal cases, our team at Quality Bailiffs take control of the process to deliver the desired result.

Working with our team of solicitors for the necessary legal steps to be taken to recover your assets (or the value of them), they are clear in their approach and aim for a result that is perfect for you.

Commercial lease forfeiture in Bristol

Are your commercial tenants not vacating the property, even if the lease has ended?

An unfortunately common scenario in commercial locations that see high turnover, commercial lease forfeiture is the instance of a lease being stopped, often due to a breach of the requirements. Whilst usually not an issue in itself, if the tenants don’t move on, our Bristol-based Quality Bailiffs team can be called in to resolve the problem.

Visiting the site with a locksmith to change the locks and secure the site (and gain entry, when needed), our enforcement agents will serve and file all of the necessary legal papers and ensure the process is as efficient as it can be.

Commercial rent arrears recovery throughout Bristol

When your commercial tenants decide not to pay their rent, we’ll help you get your money back free of charge

As a landlord of commercial properties, you will likely have some level of leniency with tenants and be happy to accommodate a slightly late payment in rent. However, if tenants do not pay for several months and amass rent arrears, you need to take action to recover the money owed.

Positively, UK law works in your favour here, and we are able to provide our services free of charge.

Aiming to recover your rental arrears without the need to go to court, our enforcement agents serve a Notice of Enforcement to explain what needs to happen. Often enough to prompt payment, if this isn’t the case, our team of bailiffs in Bristol attend the property and take control of any assets to the value of the outstanding arrears.

And as any associated costs can be recovered in the same style, our commercial rent arrears service from our Bristol office is provided free of charge.

Bristol-based CCJs and High Court enforcement

We can effectively and efficiently enforce the judgement on your behalf

Instances unfortunately exist where you may need to apply for a County Court Judgement (CCJ) from the court. Once granted, however, it’s only the first part of the process, as it then needs to be issued and enforced.

By transferring your case from the County Court to the High Court (which can happen if your CCJ is to the value of at least £600), UK law details that a Certified Enforcement Agent - a bailiff - can act under the supervision of a High Court Enforcement Officer and recover the appropriate monies.

A notable part of our service offering, our team of bailiffs in Bristol take the necessary steps forward to recover any outstanding debt effectively and efficiently.

Recovering debt from Bristol’s businesses and individuals

In both commercial and personal lives, we can be owed money from other businesses or individuals. Most of us are happy to allow small delays in payments, but if payment doesn’t happen in any form, our Quality Bailiffs team in the Bristol office are able to get involved and help you recover any debt.

Recovering business to business debts around Bristol

Having business debtors who don’t pay can be frustrating, but current legislation is in place to support you

Legislation is in place around late payments and can be important as a Bristol-based business to help protect you against those who do not pay their debts.

When we are involved in the process, we formally remind debtors they need to pay interest on any amounts owed, in addition to being liable for reimbursing you the costs of the creditor if invoices are not paid promptly.

Or experienced enforcement agents are incredibly experienced in this service area, and if responses to reminders and collection letters aren’t action, the team attend the property to ideally recover the money immediately. However, if this process isn’t successful, the debt will be referred to our solicitors for legal processing, and enforcement and recovery of the debt becomes possible.

Delivering Bristol-based statutory demands

Do you need support to deliver and enforce a legal statutory demand notice?

If you have money owed to you that is more than £5,000 from an individual or £750 from a business, our Bristol Quality Bailiffs team will follow the Insolvency Act to a point where payment has to be made within 21 days of the demand being issued.

As bankruptcy or insolvency is a likely end result if the debt isn’t finalised, the statutory demand issued by an enforcement agent can be enough to encourage payment of the outstanding monies.

Support with visits and legal proceedings in Bristol

A full suite of support services is offered to companies and individuals considering debt recovery

Working in conjunction with several legal practices and Bristol-based property companies, our services are regularly hired to create strong foundations for robust legal cases.

For example, visiting a debtor at their property to develop a clear understanding of their situation - and to recover the debt instantly if possible - the aim for many is to prevent the need to go to court unless it’s the only option.
