Hi,Trespass is defined as the immediate and direct unauthorised interference with another individuals goods.For trespass to be proven there must be intention on the part of the defendant to deliberately interfere with another’s goods.The definition of trespass includes using, removing, touching or destroying another’s goods. Examples of this are slashing someone’s tires with a knife or running a key alongside an individual’s car scratching the paint work.
