Evicting squatters from private rented sector properties

Landlords of all rented residential accommodation should be able to evict squatters without the need to obtain a Court Order. This would have to be done by licensed bailiff to make sure it was done correctly. Currently there is a rather obscure hardly ever used procedure where a resident owner/occupier can evict squatters in residential accommodation without the need to go to Court. This in itself needs simplifying. Landlords have rented residential accommodation should be entitled to use this procedure. As an option instead of using a certified bailiff the police could be involved e.g. where there is a particular fear of violence etc.

Why does this matter?

The law leans too much in favour of squatters.
