Since squatting in residential property became a criminal offense in 2012 we have noted a large increase in squatting in commercial premises.
Many of these squats in commercial premises have become long term residential squats. We have attended and carried out evictions where up to 40 illegal squatters have taken over commercial buildings, installing washing machines, tumble dryers, cookers and other equipment to use them as in a permanent residence.
Squatters can cause considerable amount of damage to the infrastructure of commercial premises, often illegally tapping into the electricity supply, leave a vast amount of waste and debris causing a health hazard and huge clean up expenses.
Commercial premises are also more often used for illegal raves where hundreds of drug fuelled participants can cause extensive damage in a few hours.
GB K9 Protection Security Services, have an immense amount of experience in dealing with squatters in commercial premises and can advise on various methods to deal with this particular problem.
Often the problems can be resolved by Kent K9 Protection Security Services effectively using some of the common law powers without the need to go through a lengthy court process.
