Evictions Gone Bad!

Not Your Typical Eviction

The typical residential or commercial eviction process in South Florida takes around one to two months.  In rare occurrences, evictions could take up to one year.  However, near the British town of Basildon in Essex County, east of London, England, it took the Basildon Council ten (10) years to evict nearly 400 residents of Dale Farm.

Locally, when a landlord obtains a Writ of Possession to evict a tenant residing in Miami Dade or Broward County (South Florida), the local Sheriff's Office usually sends one of two officers to handle the eviction.  However, the government near London, England called upon some 50 riot police officers, cherry picker machines, cranes, and diggers in order to execute on the eviction.

Numerous news stations and reports were on hand to witness the riot police use helmets, shields, stun guns and axes, in order to accomplish their goal of removing the residents and protesters from Dale Farm.

With all of the protesters and residents putting up a strong fight with the governmental officials and police, one can only imagine what it would be like to be a part of the commercial property management office that had to deal with the tenants on a daily basis.
