Vacant Property Risks
From building materials to contents vacant properties are a prime target for theft as they are often recognisably empty for extended periods of time. With theft potentially resulting in thousands of pounds of real losses security is essential.
Empty buildings are a prime target for trespass and vandalism with vandalism costing property owners hundreds of millions of pounds per year. Security guards are the most effective way of preventing trespass and vandalism and surpass CCTV in effectiveness.
Some 20,000 people squat unoccupied buildings across the UK each year and this number continues to grow. As well as potential damage to the property squatting also results in legal difficulties including squatters rights, eviction proceedings and devaluation of the property.
Our Vacant Property Security Services
Mobile patrols are useful on larger vacant properties or for country homes where a larger area needs to be covered. Our specialist patrol monitoring software and real time control room updating facilities ensure that mobile patrols can cover wide areas whilst providing vigilant protection to your property. Mobile patrols will work from a single control room on the property providing a clear presence that deters trespass.
For low risk properties remote monitoring will often be enough to deter trespass and criminal activity. CCTV systems monitored from a central or in property control room greatly deter trespass and allow for an instant response should any problem arise. We can provide you with fully trained remote monitoring security staff to reduce vacant property risks.
For medium to high risk vacant properties our security guard services can offer 24-hour year-round protection with two or more security guards, or teams, providing full protection to the building from a single manned location within the property, or grounds. Vacant property security guards can closely monitor your premises, respond quickly to trespass, attempted theft or vandalism and completely neuter the threat of squatting.
Security Risk Assessment
To ensure we provide the best possible service that has the highest impact in deterring threats we carry out full security risk assessments on your vacant property. These risk assessments will identify potential points of entry, optimal security roots and optimal placement for CCTV, signage and other deterrents.

Banking Firm London
The client, having identified a need for security, having previously not had any was based in access-controlled offices. Due to several incidents where persons in the shared office building had let non-authorised personnel in, the client felt the time had come to have a physical presence which would work as a deterrent. We advised that placing guards at the entrance to the building and developing the concierge role to encompass a signing in book was essential. We also introduced wanding whereby persons coming in building were checked for potential weapons or objects that could be used to cause harm. This type of practise is optional and some clients we work with prefer this not to happen however in government concierges we have supplied this is often mandatory. The guard has joined the team and works in tandem with reception staff for access control, providing a first point of contact for the bank’s staff and customers alike whilst keeping the site secure. Since the introduction no incidents have been reported at site and the customer has praised our guard.
