Protection against all security threats facing your Vacant property
Every good property manager aims for each development, refurbishment and re-letting to run smoothly, without any void period, from occupancy to works and from works to occupancy. In reality there are often unavoidable difficulties that mean a property will be vacant for a certain period of time while it is in between uses and thus requires security.
This can be due to purchasing the property with vacant possession or decanting a property with multiple tenants who have different lengths of lease. Properties are often left vacant when applications for planning permission exceed their estimated completion dates and tenants have already arranged to vacate.
Properties are also left vacant while construction works are put out to tender or when construction teams are running behind schedule. Longer periods of vacancy can occur due to funding and personnel restrictions that limit the number of projects which can be undertaken at a single time.
Such void periods can be indefinite and difficult to predict. During these times it is imperative to ensure that a project is not further delayed or derailed altogether by squatters taking possession of property or by metal thieves destroying the utilities infrastructure.
Even leaving a property vacant for 24hrs carries a significant risk. Squatters and metal thieves can take what they want from a building within that time. They are adept at sighting properties that are vacant or about to become vacant and we encounter cases where a property is broken into the very same day tenants or security guards leave.
Whilst vacant, properties face a range of potential threats to their security. An empty building is vulnerable to unlawful occupation (squatting), vandalism and dilapidation.
