A break-in or vandalism on your property is a devastating occurrence, so homeowners and property managers alike need to invest and work hard to keep their empty building safe.
Keeping a commercial property secure is hard enough when it is full of people, but it’s even worse when it’s empty. As many commercial properties are still empty, and likely to remain so following the introduction of the tier lockdown system, their owners and managers need to be particularly careful.
For any property owners, landlords, letting agents or property managers with a vacant property, we’ve put together a guide to keeping your vacant buildings secure.
Ensure That Ongoing Maintenance Is Carried Out
If a property is vacant for a long time, then it can start to decay and openings, such as windows and doors, can become insecure. Criminals will notice the opportunity and find it easier to enter your property. If you don’t have the time to attend to regular property maintenance, repairs and inspections, then work with an experienced facilities management team like ours. We can undertake regular property maintenance to ensure that it is always secure and reduce the opportunities for criminals to enter your property.
Hire A Respected Security Company
After keeping your property well-maintained, hiring a security services provider is one of the easiest ways you can keep your vacant property safe from intruders. From security guards to vacant property inspections to assess the issues and provide solutions, we can keep your property safe for you, giving you extra peace of mind. This support is particularly useful if you live far away from your vacant property and don’t have the time to visit it regularly.
Use Technology To Your Advantage
One of the biggest problems that vacant property owners face is monitoring their property. While our security guards and inspections can help, we understand that you might want a more continual presence to act as a deterrent and to allow you to check up on your property at any time. That’s why we offer a range of technical security services so that you can check up on your vacant property remotely. We offer advanced technology systems, including CCTV towers, access control, intruder alarms and much more. So, whatever you need, we can help you to install and maintain it to ensure that your vacant property is always protected.
Engage An Insolvency Expert Quickly To Protect Property
Unfortunately, many businesses are falling on hard times during the pandemic. As a result, they often struggle to pay their debts, and many face insolvency.
