Customer Question

Hi Chris
The Directors of a company and anyone related to it were served with a Trespass Notice.
What I have been unable to find out, what are the consequences of breaching the notice.
If someone said verbally it was OK to come onto the property but when the request was formally made by email to be able to do so and no response was received, would that suggest the Trespass Notice was still valid?

In a situation like this where oral permission was given, the police would likely decline to prosecute because of the uncertainty. They dont often prosecute under the Trespass Act, especially where the notice has been given but then the notice giver appears to waive the requirement.
