When people start trespassing on your property, it could cause huge concerns. First of all, you will consider your safety and that of your property. Often, the best idea on your mind would be contacting the police as soon as possible.
But before you call the police, read this article to the end as you might get a different idea that might work better. Whatever the case may be, you are entitled to make it stop. The following steps will ensure you have an edge on the situation.
- Review Your Situation
The right action in such a situation is to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney. That way, they help you gather the case’s full details and the best action to take. When working with a law firm, one thing they do is review the documents and ask some critical questions.
These and many more will help to understand the situation and the best line of action. This interaction can be done over the phone, where you answer some questions that will help your attorney understand the facts.
- Expert Evidence
If the person trespassing on your property claims you’re mistaken or perhaps asserting that your boundary isn’t where it should be, you might need to consider getting expert evidence.
It could entail needing an expert surveyor’s report. To make sure you’re on the right stance of the situation, you will need to help with a local expert surveyor to help produced report setting of the proper assessment of the property.
- Get The Court Involved
If, despite every attempt and the person refuse to remedy your concern, then it is time to get the court involved. Through the law, you will have the right to enforce remedial action. Your legal representative will draft out a document for your trespasser, called ‘letter before claim.’ The report will state in detail your argument and the findings of the expert surveyor. After this stage, you should expect a response from your trespasser’s legal advisers.
- Going To Court
Your legal representative will prepare the formal court papers for an injunction, which often indicts for something to happen. It could be the removal of unauthorized structures or equipment. Your trespasser might respond, saying they have the right to whatever they are doing. Your attorney will discuss the argument and help take the necessary steps.
- Court And Closing Of The File
Court hearing usually lasts a day, in which lawyers representing you and the other party will argue the case. You must be in attendance, including any witness you want to rely on to give evidence. By the end of the day, the judge will set out a formal conclusion called a ‘court order.’ If you win this case, expect the court to order the trespasser to pay your legal fees. If you lose, the reverse will be the case.
By working with an experienced attorney, you’re sure of winning the case provided you have enough evidence. In case you’re looking for that legal representative that ensures you get the best result, contact us so we can proceed.
