Risk – How can risk be evaluated to understand security requirements?
There is no ‘one size, fits all’ approach to void security. There is a fine balance between doing too much and incurred excess costs and doing too little so the property is vulnerable. Evaluating risk and the security response is a value judgement based on each client’s perception of risk. This is influenced by its value, the duration it will be vacant, location, age and type of property and environmental factors like historic crime in the area, local graffiti levels, fly-tipping etc. Secure Empty Property’s Crime In Your Area, Risk Slider, and Good Practice Guide are useful resources to consider.Back to Resources
