Vacant Property Services


Are your responsible for one or more vacant commercial properties? Vacant properties are more susceptible to deterioration, misuse and damage. Our Vacant Property Inspection Service helps to protect your property against all forms of damage including fire, flood, theft, vandalism, graffiti and illegal occupation.

Covering the Cambridgeshire area, we can inspect your property as often as required, send regular updates and reports and act promptly on any issues. Following an initial consultation to fully understand your security requirements, our vacant property service can be tailored specifically to your property needs. We can even combine our security guard visits with temporary physical security systems such as monitored intruder alarms or CCTV systems to provide complete, robust security for your site. Any activations will be immediately picked up by our 24/7 monitoring centre and will send a security officer to site straight away to investigate further.

Why Do I Need A Vacant Property Inspection Service?

  • Reduce Risk – less chance of break-ins, vandalism or theft
  • Protect Staff – employees have the extra protection needed when on-site alone or at vulnerable periods
  • Manage Crowds – at events by preventing crowd crushes, and dealing with unruly behaviour
  • Control Access – our security officers are highly trained to effectively man your reception, concierge or gate house

Buildings Insurance

As well as losing rental income, building owners may also pay increased insurance premiums whilst a property is empty. Add onto this any potential repair bills caused by vandalism or break ins, and the costs can soon mount up.

Most insurance companies will stipulate that building owners lose the right to claim pay outs if the conditions for unoccupied buildings haven’t been met. We’ll work with you to ensure all terms and conditions of your building’s insurance is covered, tailoring our service to meet or exceed minimum requirements.

Illegal Occupation

Whilst current law prevents squatters from entering residential properties, no such law exists for the protection of commercial properties. When vacant, a commercial property is highly susceptible to squatting. Our vacant property service can help deter any unwanted activities. We can board up properties, provide regular randomly timed inspections, monitor meter readings and provide full inspection reports.

Break in and Vandalism

Vacant properties are a magnet for potential break ins and malicious vandalism. Protecting your property from such damage can provide substantial cost savings on unwanted repair bills. Our security guard visits act as a deterrent to such activity. Combining this solution with security systems such as a monitored intruder alarm or CCTV system, provides a robust security solution to really protect your property.

SIA Licensed Guards

Our security guarding team are all local to the Cambridgeshire area, are extensively trained, SIA licensed, and DBS checked. As part of our initial security consultation, we’ll work with you to ensure you get the right security guard to fit seamlessly within your business requirements.

SIA is the regulating body for the private security industry. Their strict licensing criteria ensures that private security operatives are ‘fit and proper’ persons who are properly trained and qualified to do their job.
