NFU Illegal Encampment Service

Farmer information pack providing guidance on police and local authority powers, possession orders and GRC Bailiffs.

An illegal encampment, also known as an unauthorised encampment, is the unlawful occupation of land without permission from the landowner or occupier. This constitutes a trespass, which is a civil law matter.

To assist members with illegal encampment problems, the NFU has produced an Illegal Encampment Farmer Information Pack. Contained within this pack is information regarding police & local authority powers, possession orders and GRC Bailiffs.

NFU Farmer & Grower members are entitled to a 10% discount on GRC Bailiffs eviction fees, as well as a 12.5% discount on fees if they instruct the NFU Panel Solicitors to obtain a possession order.
