Trespassing Defence Lawyers Sydney
Trespassing Offences | Leading Defence Lawyers
If someone comes onto your property for a lawful purpose, such as delivering mail or visiting, they are not breaking the law. However, if they have no such lawful purpose, or if you ask someone to leave a property where you are the owner or occupier, they generally must leave (with the exception, for example, of Police exercising lawful powers). In those circumstances, they could have committed a criminal offence.
Section 4 of the Inclosed Lands Protection Act 1901 (NSW) makes it an offence to enter inclosed lands without permission. This is punishable by a fine of five penalty units (or 10 penalty units if the land is prescribed premises, such as a school or hospital).
Section 4A of the act imposes harsher penalties for remaining on land after a direction to leave from the owner, occupier or person apparently in control of the land where the offender behaves offensively while remaining on the land. The penalty for this is a fine of 20 penalty units where the land is a prescribed premise and a fine of 10 penalty units in all other cases.
The Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) also sets out more serious charges, some with severe penalties, for offences with more aggravated features.
We have experience in defending these charges, negotiating plea deals and dealing with sentences (including avoiding convictions) for these types of offences).
