Squatters – How can I prevent squatting?
Squatting can cause a huge headache for property owners in legal fees, eviction costs, repairs and delays to refurbishment projects. A combination of physical preventative and electronic responsive services is best. By ‘target hardening’ the site access to set up a squat is made more difficult. By adding monitored alarms, any successful breach of the property is known immediately and a fast response team can attend before locks have been changed or a formal squat established. The alarm evidences the time and date of the breach so that the police can be informed who should remove the squatters as criminal damage was caused.Back to Resources
