Removing unwanted trespassers in Southampton

Your land is yours to have who, or what, you want on it at any given time. This specifically means that anyone who is located on your land without permission is effectively doing so unlawfully - known more commonly as trespassing.

Understanding the implications of such illegal siting, our Quality Bailiffs team in Southampton have the skills, means and determination to directly deal with and resolve all forms of trespassers.

Supporting the eviction process of Southampton-based travellers

Are there unauthorised travellers encamped on your land in Southampton or the surrounding areas?

Trespassers evicted

Unauthorised encampment is arguably the most worrying aspect for land owners, particularly where that land isn’t occupied heavily by buildings. The damage that can be caused as a result can be financially-damaging, even from a small number of travellers.

Fortunately, as a landowner you have a common law right to evict any unwanted travellers or trespassers. We appreciate the eviction process can be daunting, however, and so we use our knowledge and skills to help you regain rightful possession of your land.

Covering the entire process, we start with serving the necessary notices and finishing with on-site eviction, through which we work closely with the Hampshire police constabulary to ensure a swift and efficient process.

And appreciating that trespassing can be a regular problem, upon returning the site to you, we can work with you to ensure you reduce the chance of trespassing happening and becoming a problem once again.

Evicting Southampton-based squatters and protesters

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

Enforcement Team

Protests by their very nature aren’t illegal. They’re often encouraged. And the vast majority that take place in Southampton are peaceful and on public land.

However, there are some that take place unexpectedly and on private land. Unfortunately, such protests can often produce squatters, and should they decide to not move on, our knowledgeable team of enforcement agents can be tasked with quickly removing them from the land.

As trained eviction bailiffs with experience in dealing with difficult entries, lock-ins, emergency first aid and conflict management, our Specialist Enforcement Response Team formally serve writs of possession against the the relevant parties and usually within a short period of time the land or property you own is rightfully returned to you.

Horse and animal removal in Southampton

Although often appearing harmless, the siting of a horse or other animal by a third party on land you own can produce costly damages

Horse Eviction

The topic of unwanted bodies trespassing on private property is often thought of as being related purely to us as humans, but it can just as easily be animals - often horses - that have taken up residence on your land. Particularly in and around the New Forest, this can be a real problem.

However, the Control of Horses Act 2015 gives us the full ability to detain and remove any fly-grazing horses from your Southampton property, and it can be a particularly efficient process - with one of our agents serving a 96 hour notice, if the horses aren’t removed within this period (within which their health is checked and food and water is provided if needed), our team arranges for their removal.

With the appropriate authorities informed, our Southampton-based Quality Bailiffs team confidently lead on this and produce a first-class result in a matter of days.

Using our Southampton-based bailiff services to recover your assets

Suitable for both commercial and personal cases, our experienced team at Quality Bailiffs can take full control of the process to deliver the desired end result.

Including working with our team of solicitors to make all of the necessary legal preparations to ultimately recover your assets, or the value of them, they are meticulous in their approach and are driven to produce a result that is perfect for you.

Commercial lease forfeiture in Southampton

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 process of a lease being stopped, often due to a breach of the lease requirements. Whilst itself often not an issue, should the tenants decide not to move on, this is when our Southampton-based Quality Bailiffs team are called in.

Attending the site with a reputable locksmith to ensure the full changing of the locks and to secure the site (or starting by gaining entry to it if needed), our team will provide you with new keys to all of the doors, whilst the enforcement agents serve and file all of the necessary legal documentation to ensure the process is as smooth as it can be.

Commercial rent arrears recovery throughout Southampton

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

As a commercial landlord, you may very well have some leniency with tenants and be willing to let it go if the rent is late one month. However, when tenants do not pay for several months and amass a large amount of rent arrears, you need to take action to recover the money owed.

And there is good news in two formats - the first is that UK law undoubtedly works in your favour, and the second is that our services are provided free of charge.

Ideally recovering your rental arrears without the need to go to court, our enforcement agents serve a Notice of Enforcement that explains what needs to happen next. Often enough to encourage payment, where this doesn’t happen, our team of bailiffs in Southampton will attend the property and take full control of any assets to the value of the outstanding arrears.

What’s more, as any associated costs can be recouped in the same fashion, we can provide our commercial rent arrears service from our Southampton office free of charge.

Southampton-based CCJs and High Court enforcement

We can effectively and efficiently enforce the judgement on your behalf

Unfortunately, instances exist where you may need to apply for a County Court Judgement (CCJ) from the court. Once granted, that’s only the first part of the process - the next is following up on the enforcement of it.

By taking moving your case from the County Court to the High Court (which can only happen if your CCJ is for a value of at least £600), current law in the UK highlights that a Certified Enforcement Agent - a bailiff - can act under the supervision of a High Court Enforcement Officer to recover the appropriate money on your behalf.

A key part of our offering, our experienced team of bailiffs in Southampton take the necessary steps to recover any outstanding debt as quickly as is possible.

Recovering debt from Southampton’s businesses and individuals

In both business and personal lives, we can almost unknowingly find ourselves owing money to - or being owed money from - others. Many are happy to accommodate small delays in payments, particularly when the person is known to them, but if payment doesn’t happen at all, the team at the Quality Bailiffs Southampton office can step into the process and help you recover the debt.

Recovering business to business debts around Southampton

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

Late payment legislation now exists and is useful as a Southampton-based business to protect you against others who do not pay their invoices.

When hiring Quality Bailiffs for support, we remind the debtors that they are required to pay interest on the amount owed, as well as being liable to reimbursing you the recovery costs of the creditor if invoices are not paid on time.

As our experienced enforcement agents are fully versed in this area, where responses to reminders and collection letters aren’t received, they will attend the premises with a view to recovering the money in person. Where this isn’t successful, the debt will be escalated, ultimately to the point where it is referred to our solicitors for legal processing, and enforcement and recovery of the debt becomes possible.

Delivering Southampton-based statutory demands

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

If money is owed to you that is more than £5,000 from an individual or £750 from a company, our Southampton-based team of enforcement agents will follow the Insolvency Act to get to a point where payment is made within three full weeks of the statutory demand being issued.

And as bankruptcy or insolvency is a genuine possibility if the debt isn’t paid, the delivery of the statutory demand by an enforcement agent can be enough to, at the very least, recoup the outstanding monies.

Support with visits and legal proceedings in Southampton

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

In close collaboration with several legal practices and Southampton-based property companies, our services are regularly hired so to provide the robust foundational elements that are needed to build a strong legal case.

For instance, by visiting a debtor at their property to paint a clear picture of their situation - and to recover the debt or part thereof if possible - the aim for many is to remove the need to go to court unless it’s directly needed.
