Welcome to our landing page on our in-house legal services that specialize in evicting squatters from properties

Welcome to our landing page on dealing with squatters under UK law. If you’re a property owner or manager, you understand the importance of keeping your property safe and secure. Unfortunately, squatting can be a problem, and when someone occupies your property without permission, it can be difficult to remove them legally without expert legal advice and assistance.

At Global Guardians, we specialize in providing legal services to property owners and managers dealing with squatters. Our team has extensive knowledge and experience in the legal aspects of squatting law in the UK and can assist you in removing squatters from your property legally and effectively.

Here are some important things you need to know about squatters under UK law:

1. Squatting is illegal

Squatting in residential property has been a criminal offense in England and Wales since September 2012. Squatters can be prosecuted for breaking and entering, criminal damage, and theft.

2. Squatting in commercial property

Squatting in commercial property is not a criminal offense, but the owner can still obtain a civil court order for eviction.

3. Court Proceedings

If the squatters refuse to leave the property, you can initiate court proceedings to obtain a possession order, which will enable the legal eviction of the squatters.

4. Illegal Eviction

It’s important to note that illegal eviction is a criminal offense, and property owners or managers can face legal action if they attempt to remove squatters without following the correct legal procedures.

Here’s how our legal services can assist you in dealing with squatters under UK law:

1. Assessment

Our legal team will assess your case and advise you on the best legal course of action.

2. Legal Notices

We can serve legal notices on the squatters, informing them of the legal action being taken against them.

3. Court Proceedings

4. Enforcement
