As the UK’s foremost provider of vacant property security services, there is much that we can do to make sure that your void and vacant buildings are kept secure and safe while not in use. Here are just a few of the options available to you…
With more and more buildings standing empty across the region, void property security in the UK has never been more important. An open target for squatters, thieves, vandals, and arsonists, you need to treat any vacant buildings in your possession as being as important as inhabited ones.
Quite aside from the cost implications of repairing the premises and evicting squatters at some future date, you need to remember that, even though they forced their way into a vacant property, as the legal owner, you are still liable for any injuries incurred by the intruders whilst on site.
A simple way to discourage opportunists, whether they intend to steal from a void property or squat in it, is to seal it up. Our team of security experts will install new, heavy duty locks on all the doors and board up all of the windows, meaning that it will take a concerted effort from any would-be intruders to gain entrance. Suitable signage posted around the outside of the property declaring that it being protected by Marpol Security should act as a further deterrent.
The next step from deterrence is monitoring. With our 24-hour CCTV system constantly monitored by our security specialists, we can have one of our mobile patrols to your vacant property at the first sign of trouble. Likewise, by utilising our alarm response service, should any break-in occur out of site of our cameras, our monitoring team will be alerted immediately. We have a number of CCTV packages available to our clients, including both temporary and permanent solutions.
A more pro-active void property security service can be found among our mobile patrols. Our teams of dedicated and fully-licensed professional security guards will attend upon the building at intervals during the day and night
During their visits they will check that all doors and windows are secured, and that there have been no unauthorised attempts at entry.
While a certain number of checks will be performed over any given period, the timing of each inspection will be random, in case anybody is keeping an eye on comings-and-goings to the vacant property.
