In New Zealand there is no legal requirement to give a trespass notice in writing - however a written document reinforces the situation for the person, they cannot say they did not know of the notice and of the requirement to leave and not return.
Our team has experience in serving trespass notices for companies and individuals.
Why use a professional?
As an independent party we are not personally involved in what can often be a stressful task. You may find serving a trespass notice yourself awkward, or you may be expecting to encounter a negative response from the recipient.
Our team are experienced with serving trespass notices and where possible mitigating any negative response.
We will serve the trespass notice and then lodge it with the local police, noting time and date. This leaves no room for the recipient to deny ever receiving the trespass notice.
There are two ways to deliver a trespass notice, we can assist with the service of a written trespass notice.
1. Verbal trespass
If you deliver a trespass notice verbally, it is advisable to record the date and time along with the reason for giving a trespass notice to that person. Also record the name or description of the person asked to leave.
2. Written trespass
If you undertake a written trespass, complete three copies of the Trespass Notice:
one copy to the person you are serving the trespass notice on
one copy for you to keep
one copy to give to the nearest police station or attending police officer, for entering into the Police records database
To serve a notice you simply hand it to the person. If they refuse to accept it and it drops on the ground, it is still considered served. Keep that copy and note down that the person refused to accept the notice.
You are required to give a reasonable time for the trespasser to leave. If the person stays or takes an unreasonable time to comply, call 111 and ask for Police.
What do you do if the recipient decides to ignore the trespass notice?
If someone comes back after you have given them a trespass notice they will have committed an offence. Call 111 and ask for Police.
It is an offence punishable by a fine not exceeding $1,000.00 or imprisonment not exceeding 3 months to enter the an address that you have been trespassed from within 2 years from the date of receiving the notice.
