VOID PROPERTY CHECKS

More and more properties are left unoccupied waiting for development or to be sold or let. These properties can quickly fall into a state of dis-repair or suffer attacks from vandals. Void inspections are a simple way to keep a regular check on empty properties and can generate useful reports which include utility meter readings, building and grounds condition reports as well as informing the client of any fly tipping or events of vandalism on the site.

These inspections can be carried out on a regular basis as required. After each visit a report is generated and sent to the client. These reports can allow the client to judge the scale of threat from vandalism or property decay and measures can be put in place to counter act these threats.

Unreported damage to property can reduce its sale or rental value. Spotting damage or decay early can allow the property owner to carry out necessary repairs a small amount at a time rather than allow a few small problems to escalate into a major financial burden.

Void Property Inspections 

What are Void Property Inspections?

The economic downturn has led to numerous empty premises in the UK which need to be protected from vandalism, fire, squatters and theft meaning that this is one of our most popular Atlas UK products. 

If your business has recently moved sites and is still responsible for the previous premises or has downsized and left behind empty buildings are you aware that most insurance companies require inspections of the property to be carried out?

Void Property Inspections can be tailored to suit the requirements of the customer and the insurance company and normally include:

  • Physical check of outside of property for damage or theft
  • Physical check of inside of property for damage or theft, squatters or evidence of illegal entrance
  • Removal of mail
  • Reading of utility meters

Do I need them?

If you have empty properties on your portfolio we strongly advise that you contract us to undertake this product on your behalf after consulting with your insurers. Many insurance companies make these inspections a requirement of cover and will discount premiums if a security company is contracted to deliver them.

How often should I have them?

Insurers normally require weekly inspections, but depending on the site involved it could be as frequent as every other day. If you are unsure please contact us.

VOID PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AND PROTECTION

Property inspections and audits are generally designed to satisfy the needs of insurance policies, ensure compliance with safety regulations and meet the requirements of industry bodies.

Fully briefed on your requirements, objectives and areas of concern, our experienced inspectors visit void premises to carry out internal and external observations. They will determine the effectiveness of existing barriers to physical entry so that we can advise on how to keep your assets protected against theft, sabotage, arson, vandalism and other threats.

All external apertures are inspected for signs of intrusion, foliage checked for signs that it could be blocking gutters and abandoned vehicles, excess rubbish or graffiti reported back to the client. Internal observations involve assessments for signs of leaks & rubbish as well as extensive check of Fire exits, fire alarm systems and notation of meter readings. 

Inspection reports are completed, including meter readings and photo evidence, and are sent electronically to our office in real time and then forwarded to the client in a choice of format to suit.

In conjunction with our regular physical checks we can also provide concrete barriers, steel shutters and wireless intruder systems for the complete void property management service

Property Inspections

As well as regular security patrols, you will receive property management and maintenance to make sure your site is kept to a high standard and you remain compliant.

You will receive reports on any changes to the building both internally and externally, and we will work with you to fix any problems. By keeping your site maintained we can minimise any damage to your property. Electricity, gas, heating and water can all be turned off or drained down to prevent burst pipes or unnecessary costs, and we will also report any issues surrounding pigeons or vermin which could present a health risk to anyone entering the premises.

Once your property becomes vacant we can change the locks to prevent unauthorised entry by previous key holders who could re-enter the premises to cause damage or remove items which do not belong to them. We will also seal your letter box to make sure there isn’t a build-up of unwanted mail which can become a fire risk. You will be complying with insurance regulations as when a building is empty insurance companies insist on the property being inspected regularly. If this is not carried out your policy will become invalid
