Sending a Notice to Stop Trespassing

| March 21, 2017

Have problems with trespassers? There are a few approaches you can take. You could put up new barriers, you could notify the trespasser in person, or you could put up a sign, for starters. But if you know who they are and can identify them, you can also send them a no trespassing letter to ban them from your property. We’ve put together a sample below. When you send a letter like this, make sure to send it certified mail and to notify law enforcement, if appropriate.
