Eviction of travellers using a Writ of Possession

Often a preferred method of how to evict travellers from public land, another option for landowners is to enforce a Writ of Possession.

Although a longer process, once a Writ is issued, it can be enforced immediately. By pursuing this route, enforcement is carried out by High Court Enforcement Officers with assistance from the Police. A fast track option does exist to speed up this legal process.

This method of eviction is typically used to evict travellers in scenarios where compliance with an eviction notice is unlikely and that violence/physical resistance is a possibility.

How long does it take to evict travellers?

This will depend on the legal process that is chosen, usually dictated by whether the land is privately owned or not.
