Trespass

Trespass means that land is being unlawfully occupied by someone who is not the landowner. Behaviour amounting to trespass may include squatting, remaining in rented premises unlawfully after a lease has expired or leaving unwanted items on someone else’s land without permission. Unlike many other civil matters in English law, trespass is considered to be actionable per se. This means that there is no requirement for a claimant to have suffered consequential damage or financial loss in order to bring an action for trespass.

What to do

Ackroyd Legal is a leading property law firm based in London, and our specialist solicitors act for both owners and other occupiers of land when a claim for trespass arises. It is possible to apply to the court for a possession order, or in exceptional circumstances when the time is of the essence this process may be fast-tracked to the High Court. Instances of trespassing may also give rise to an action for adverse possession.

Explaining your rights

If you are involved in a trespass situation as either an owner or as an occupier, we can help by explaining your rights and advising you on the next steps, looking after your interests at all times. Please contact a member of our team, who will be very happy to help you.
