If you are an insolvency practitioner, you will often find yourself responsible for vacant and void properties during the administration process. As such, you are expected to keep those premises (as well as any other business assets, such as stock and equipment) safe and secure.
Here at Marpol Security, we create specially-tailored security packages to meet the unique needs of our insolvency practitioner clients across Merseyside. We have local staff based throughout the county, including Liverpool, Sefton, Bootle, Southport, Knowsley, Huyton, St Helens, the Wirral, Wallasey, Birkenhead, and beyond.
As Merseyside’s leading provider of security solutions, we have much to offer insolvency practitioners in the county. Here are some of the services we provide:
The first thing we do, before putting together a suitable security package, is to take a look at your existing security measures, if any. Once we know what you already have in place, we can identify those areas that need improvement. This helps us to concoct the ideal security arrangement for you and your business..
If your void properties contain valuable equipment and stock, they may become a tempting target for thieves and vandals. As part of your insolvency practitioner security package, we provide you with trained and SIA-licensed on-site security. This can include round-the-clock cover, as our teams operate in rotating shifts.
An alternative to manned security is a CCTV surveillance system. This are designed to meet the specific needs of the premises in question and can involve a fixed or a temporary CCTV solution, depending on the circumstances. The video feed these systems produce is monitored on a 24/7 basis by our remote team, who will instruct our local mobile patrol units to investigate in the event of any unusual activity.
If your property has been recently vacated, we recommend that you change the locks on all windows and doors. This prevents the former owners from gaining entry if they have a copy of the key. In addition, we can install roller shutters over the doors and windows and fit heavy-duty padlocks to the gates.
Regular inspections of your void properties are often a condition of any insurance policy you may have in place. Our mobile patrol units can perform these checks for you as regularly as you need. They will make sure all doors and windows are locked, that there is no evidence of attempted entry, and that the building has suffered no environmental damage.
