Illegal encampments: preventing and reacting to trespassers


This Business Guide provides an overview on:

  • How to help prevent trespassers from accessing your land; and
  • Reacting to trespass situations.

We have other business guides setting out the various options available to you in evicting the trespassers, being:

  • Illegal encampments: police and local authority powers (BG008); and
  • Illegal encampments: applying for a possession order (BG009).

As this guide is an overview, you should consider whether it is necessary to take further advice about your situation. NFU members can obtain initial legal and professional advice from NFU CallFirst on 0370 845 8458.
