|It's Not Squatting If It's An Industrial Building|
According to the newest 'residents' in East Putney & a new law
Residents in East Putney have been disturbed by a "Trance Party" being held in a disused warehouses in Osiers Road. At the local Safer Neighbourhood Team meeting they were advised that as the building is industrial and not domestic then the laws applying to squatters do not apply.
The group of "non squatters" have backed this up with a S1449 legal notice outside the building:
The local SNT Sgt told PutneySW15.com: "The police are aware of this.
It is a non residential building on an industrial estate.
The recent legislation introduced with new police powers to arrest squatters only applies to residential premises so can not be used.
The landowners have been contacted and advised to obtain an eviction / possession notice which they have done."
