Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I visited my local Police Station about how to go about using a Trespass Notice and advised the Officer, our Trust Lawyer had already provided me with one. The Officer gave me several copies of theirs and said these ones were better to use, especially in court. Is it advisable to contact the Police Station nearest our property where we're evicting our brother. Unfortunately, the brother has lived in our house for 14yrs rent free. Any other suggestions of who to talk to, to help with serving the Trespass Notice and making it stick. I'm trying to stop my brother remaining in the house.

Sometimes the police will help serve the trespass notice, but if they don't want to do so, then you could get a private process server to serve the document. It doesn't need to be anyone special, and so it could be a friend who is willing to help.

Thank you

Try to get your brother to sign a receipt, although I expect he will be difficult

Customer
Forgive my ignorance, but a receipt for what exactly?

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

A receipt for the trespass notice, to acknowledge he has been given it

Customer
No that will never happen. We haven't served it yet, but will be taking photos and/or video at the time of personally handing it over. Its what the Officer said would good for evidence. Problem is the brother is unpredictable and extremely volatile. That's why I asked about others if not the Police that could help us serve the Notice. You've given me alot to ponder on. Thank you for your help.
