Criminal Damage Act 1971


"Under English law, the Criminal Damage Act 1971 is the main statute covering damage to property. It repealed the common law and all the statutory offences except some of those under the Malicious Damage Act 1861. It also repealed the offence of arson but allowed the use of the term for charging purposes."

I'm wondering why this is posted up on the door. Does the building get a lot of vandals maybe?

It is posted there because the premises were empty so in case anyone decided to break in, the owners have to warn them that it is illegal to do so!
