Insolvency practitioners are responsible for dealing with void properties when a company goes into administration. This includes keeping the properties themselves safe, as well as any on-site equipment and stock that may be sold during the insolvency process.
At Marpol Security, we provide a range of services for insolvency practitioners across Lancashire, covering void buildings as far afield as Accrington, Atherton, Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, Chorley, Cleveleys, Clitheroe, Darwen, Fleetwood, Lancaster, Lytham St. Annes, Morecambe, Ormskirk, Oswaldtwistle, Poulton-le-Fylde, Preston, Skelmersdale, and beyond.
As Lancashire’s leading provider of security solutions, we have much to offer insolvency practitioners across the county. Here are some of the services we provide:
We start by determining the specific security needs of your empty properties. This involves a full assessment of any existing measures you have in place, which allows us to put together a tailored security package that meets your specific requirements.
If your void properties contain stock and equipment, they can easily become targets for local thieves and other criminals. Marpol Security can supply highly-trained and experienced on-site security staff to protect your assets from potential intruders. Our SIA-licensed security professionals are available round the clock, covering day and night shifts alike.
If your building is empty, a more hands-free approach to security may be more effective. We design, install, and maintain high-quality CCTV surveillance systems for void properties across Lancashire. These produce a live video feed which is relayed to our remote monitoring unit. Their role is to alert our mobile patrols in the area to attend your property in the event of a security breach.
We always advise insolvency practitioners to change the locks on all windows and doors, in case a former owner or tenant has made duplicates of the keys. We also recommend roller shutters and heavy-duty padlock for added peace of mind.
Many insurance policies require regular inspections of void properties for their policy to remain valid. This is another service performed by our mobile patrol units, as often as your insurers require. These inspections include checking all doors and locks remain secure, as well as looking for signs of environmental damage, such as flooding. Our team logs every inspection, which can be passed onto your insurers for their files.
