Evicting travellers from private land throughout Carlisle

Are there travellers encamping without permission on land you own in Carlisle?

Rural Property Repossession

A difficult barrier for any land owner to face, whether it’s a small group of travellers or a large, extended family, the damage that can be caused throughout their illegal sitting can be more expensive than most realise.

For this reason, the Quality Bailiffs team helps you exercise your common law right to evicting any travellers you do not wish to be on your land. Making all of the necessary moves on your behalf, we’ll lead on the process and complete everything for you, including detailing the full legal ramifications of not moving on to the trespassers.

If we have exhausted our more favourable options and a physical eviction is required, we will work closely with Cumbria police to clear the site of anyone who shouldn’t be there.

Given that trespassing can be a frequent problem, once we have returned your site to you, we can provide complete support to mitigate the risk of travellers entering your land without permission at some point again in the future.

Eviction of Carlisle squatters and protesters

Although most protests may have a peaceful focus, if one takes place on private property, it can be unwanted - and they can be forced to leave


Carlisle may not be known as a protesting haven, but they do happen here. And if they happen at scale on private land, they can prove to be extremely problematic.

In these scenarios - whereby protests escalate and, in many instances, result in squatters not moving on - we can take all of the necessary steps to evicting them from the land.

Having a Specialist Enforcement Response Team at Carlisle fully versed in the entice eviction process, they can support on everything from complex entries and lock-ins to emergency first aid delivery and conflict management.

Serving writs of possession against the parties in question, the land - or property on it - is quickly returned to you as the owner.

Horse and animal removal from Carlisle locations

They may have been placed on the land by their owners, but the unwanted homing of horses or other animals on private land can quickly result in unexpected problems

unauthorised horses grazing

It’s often thought that trespassing is something restricted to humans alone, but it can be just as much of a concern when it’s animals you don’t want on your land.

Often speaking in relation to horses, the Control of Horses Act 2015 in the UK provides land owners with the opportunity to quickly remove any fly-grazing horses from their Carlisle land.

A service that’s provided by us on behalf of the land owners, we strive for a prompt and efficient process, with our local enforcement agents beginning by serving a 96 hour notice. Keeping the horses on your land throughout the process, a health and safety risk assessment is completed and if they don’t have them at present, they’re provided with access to clean and fresh food and water.

Notifying the appropriate authorities, our Carlisle team of bailiffs take care of all communication with the horse owners, and if the horses aren’t removed by the owners once the notice period has ended, arrangements are made for them to be moved on. These arrangements will cover the removal of the horses and the housing of them with a new owner, or placing them into livery storage, giving them to a horse charity, selling at public auction or where no other option is found, destroying them humanely.

Recovering your assets with our Carlisle bailiffs

Whether it’s regaining access to commercial property after tenants forfeited the lease but didn’t return the property, or a high court enforcement order has been issued and needs to be executed, our team of Carlisle bailiffs work tirelessly to recover your assets, or the value of them, quickly, efficiently and confidently.

Commercial lease forfeiture in Carlisle

Do you have a commercial lease that has been forfeited, but the tenants are still in situ?

As a large town in the popular county of Kent, there is a strong focus on commercial businesses. As a result, we unfortunately often see commercial tenants forfeiting their leases, yet not vacating the property fully or wholly.

In such situations, our Carlisle team physically visit the site with an experienced, local locksmith to gain access to the property, change the locks and ensure the site is fully secure. Our enforcement agents then record the contents of the site and deliver all of the required notices and documentations to the prior tenants.

Carlisle commercial rent arrears recovery

Have your commercial tenants failed to pay rent? Our service can recover your money, for free

Being a commercial landlord with tenants who have generated rent arrears can be both frustrating and worrying. However, current law exists in your favour, making it entirely possible to recover arrears - and this can be achieved without needing to attend court and without any costs from yourself.

With the process beginning by our Carlisle team of bailiffs serving a Notice of Enforcement, this details the next steps that are being taken on your behalf, and what the tenant needs to do to ensure the process doesn’t move to the next stage.

Should this expire without any tenant response, our Carlisle enforcement agents will visit the property and are able to take possession of any goods to the value of your outstanding arrears, as well as to recover any charges (i.e., those for our services).

CCJs and High Court enforcement in Carlisle

If a judgement has been successfully received from a court, it’s now time to enforce it

Should you have been in a position where there was a need to apply for a County Court Judgement (CCJ) - and it was successfully granted - it now needs to be served and enforced to ensure you can recover the money you are owed.

Importantly, if your CCJ is to a value of at least £600, you can transfer your case from the County Court to the High Court. Once this takes place, law in the UK explains that a Certificated Enforcement Agent - a bailiff - can act on behalf of a High Court Enforcement Officer and actively recover any outstanding debts for you.

A process our knowledgeable Carlisle team can take full control of, we will follow all of the appropriate processes to recover any owed debt promptly. Generally through the sale of the assets of the debtor, our team has the professional knowledge to recover appropriate assets to not only cover any outstanding balances, but any associated legal and service fees.

Recovering debt from businesses and individuals in Carlisle

It’s a common scenario for both businesses and individuals to be owed money. Often amounting to considerable levels, whilst many are comfortable with small delays in payments, it’s when payment doesn’t happen in any form that our services are hired to help you recover the debt.

Recovering business to business debts in Carlisle

If your business debtors are not paying, legal processes exist to force the repayment

Being a Carlisle business, legislation is in place with regards to late payments, which can assist with protecting you from the effects of unpaid invoices.

Meaning debtors need to pay interest on the monies owed - and reimburse any appropriate costs related to the recovery of the debt - our team work constantly to ensure such repayments are made.

Proactively recovering the debt, if the debtors do not respond to official collection notices, our Carlisle enforcement agents will attend the business premises in an effort to recover the debt in person. However, should payment still be refused, the process will be escalated and our experienced solicitors are involved, ultimately backing the collection of any assets to an appropriate amount related to the debt and service costs.

Carlisle-based statutory demands

Demands for payments from both individuals and companies can be effectively and efficiently delivered, followed up and enforced

If you are owed money from an individual that is at least £5,000, or £750 from a company, our team of Carlisle enforcement agents strictly follow the UK’s Insolvency Act to enforce the payment of any debt within 21 days of a statutory demand being issued.

As bankruptcy and insolvency is possible, should any relevant debt go unpaid, we often find that the official delivery of a statutory demand can itself be sufficient to encourage immediate payment.
