Construction contract workers will have to do the work to reclaim their homes if a company wants to make use of the land, and if they don’t, they can expect a fine.
BBC News reports: The Land and Buildings Reform Bill 2016, which passed the House of Lords on Thursday, aims to allow property owners to reclaim land if they are not entitled to it.
The legislation is intended to give people who have been forced to leave their homes the ability to reclaim them.
But many construction companies still use this method of eviction as a last resort to evict people from their homes.
“They’ll usually ask us to leave the property, they’ll use a bulldozer or they’ll put a lot of fencing around it, and they’ll make us dig a trench and fill it with earth,” said Pauline.
Pauline and Pauline have not lived in their house for three years and it is believed the construction company will make use this eviction to remove the two-bedroom house they share with her and her husband.
Paulines husband was working as a foreman in the construction business when he first moved to the UK from Romania in 2007, but the couple were not entitled by Romanian law to the house they shared.
In a letter to the House, the Land and Building Reform Bill said: “This bill seeks to ensure that the construction industry is transparent, accountable and transparently managed.”
The bill allows the UK’s construction industry to apply for the right to evict and reclaim property.
It also says that construction companies can be fined up to £25,000 if they do not apply for an eviction order within 60 days.
“If the building company doesn’t apply for one, they will be subject to prosecution under the Local Government Act, which carries a fine of up to 10,000 pounds,” said the bill’s parliamentary author, the Conservative peer Baroness Susan-Louise Gove.
“This is a big issue in Romania, but not as much as it is in the UK.”
The new law comes into force from 1 March and is expected to be in place for a maximum of a year.
However, there is a catch.
According to the government, an eviction can only be ordered if the occupier does not apply within the 60 days after the eviction is made.
So if the house is occupied by someone who is not a member of the building industry, the bill would allow the construction firm to apply to the courts to evict the tenant, and then to reclaim the property.
The Government hopes the legislation will ease pressure on construction companies, who already face huge financial problems.
In the past, many construction firms have used the method of evicting their tenants to make ends meet, but in recent years, the UK has seen a rise in illegal eviction.
In 2017, the number of people evicted from their properties in England and Wales more than doubled to 8,300.
In 2016, there were more than 1,600 illegal evictions recorded, which is the most recent year for which figures are available.
A total of 10,746 people were arrested by police for evictions in England, Wales and Scotland in the year to March 2017.
“The Government is looking at ways to make it easier for landlords to evict tenants, but it is still very difficult for people to access the law,” said Simon Moulton, legal director of the Institute for Public Affairs.
“That’s why this bill is a welcome step forward.”
Pauline’s husband said he was surprised by the legislation and the fine that would be paid if the company fails to evict.
“I think that’s unfair.
It’s a huge injustice to me and my wife,” he said.
“We just don’t know what will happen.
It´s a lot to take on.””
What will they do if the landlord is not paying us the rent?
It´s a lot to take on.”
