Having people living at your property without permission is a serious problem for many landlords and property agents. No rent is forthcoming, you’re unable to lease the property to a paying tenant, and you’ve no idea what damage might be inflicted on the property during their occupation.
At Marpol Security we offer an extensive range of property eviction services to landlords and letting agents across the UK, to help deal with exactly this sort of problem.
At Marpol Security, we have a range of options we can employ to remove trespassers from your property. This includes intruders as well as former tenants who have stopped paying you their contracted rent. Our team of highly-trained security professionals will see to it that the eviction process is handled in as timely a manner as possible. With assistance from local solicitors, we ensure that everything is handled safely, discreetly, and by the book.
An Interim Possession Order (or IPO) is perhaps the quickest and most effective legal basis on which to evict someone from your property. Introduced as part of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, it has since been codified into the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 (p55/s3). Once served with a properly-ratified IPO, any squatters in your property must leave within 24 hours, or they will have committed a criminal offence, for which they can be arrested and subsequently charged by the police.
For an IPO to be legally binding, the proper legal process must be adhered to:
Our team of security personnel are all fully-trained and licensed to carry out their duties, and our Enforcement Agents are no different. They have long-term experience in presenting the relevant legal documents to trespassers, squatters, and former tenants and are well-versed in the various tactics they might employ to prevent the papers from passing over. Claim papers are always served personally by one of our agents, in a clearly visible location, in front of witnesses where possible. This helps to maximise your chances of success.
From our main office in Greater Manchester, we provide property eviction services to clients across the UK. Wherever you or your property is based we have a team of Enforcement Agents on hand to look after your interests. We work with local solicitors and our own security professionals to ensure any eviction is performed with minimal complications.
