Traveller Removal and Evictions

We have over 40 years experience in removing travellers from land across the UK

We operate on a nationwide (England & Wales) basis to evict unauthorised occupants from private and public land. Our service is available every day throughout the year (except for Christmas and New Year’s days). Some occupants refer to themselves as Travellers or Gypsies, some call themselves Romany, New Age Travellers or Squatters. Whatever description they use, you, as the land owner or land owner’s representative, have the common law right to have them evicted from your land. The Constant & Co methodology is to provide enforcement support that is lawful and ethical, and to deliver a prompt, effective and holistic solution to unlawful incursions on your land and property.

There are various powers available to land owners and local authorities to facilitate the removal of unauthorised occupants. These powers are:

  • This can only be used by the landowner or their authorised agent.
  • This does not require court involvement.
  • Using this there is no penalty against the unauthorised occupants should they return.

  • This can only be used by the landowner or their authorised agent.
  • This requires carrying out a civil court procedure.

Part 55 Civil Procedures Rules (Possession Order)

  • This involves arranging an initial assessment on the land in question to include assessing the health and education needs of the individuals, as well as the number of people present and how many vehicles are on the land, and if there are any animals (we can assist with this).
  • If the unauthorised occupants return to the land within three months this carries a criminal sanction
