Housing Associations

Social housing in the local authority and housing association sector offers a different set of demands to commercial property.

Fast-response, same day service is a given. A full-range service meeting every eventuality from a single approved contractor allows the housing management team to focus on the repair and re-let of the property.

Secure Empty Property’s unique funding through the EU’s Regional Growth Fund allows a long-term approach with a powerful social agenda of local employment and inward investment.

This allows Secure Empty Property to offer flexible contractual arrangements, simple pricing structures and even joint-ventures where existing client teams can be trained-up to deliver elements of the service sharing warehousing and storage.

By analysing each clients VFM self-assessment, we can recommend new strategies to improve void turnaround and return on investment.

We can take bold steps such as committing to reduce void security expenditure year on year, outsourcing risk and losses to voids and embedding our staff into your repairs teams. Our transparent invoicing and cost summaries ensure that you are always in control.

As void security prices have been driven down in an attempt to achieve value for money, the results have generally been poor with a lack of customer care.

Secure Empty Property brings back a fully account managed service (no call centres) with game-changing business models to deliver a void security service for the 21st Century.
