Removal and recycling of unwanted items in an empty property or site can come in many forms. From a simple change of tenancy property clearance through to removal of hazardous waste, hoarding materials during probate or fly-tipping, Secure Empty Property can help.

We offer a range of domestic and commercial property clearance services to suit your needs and budget whilst our security solutions keep the property safe. All with a single call.

Building clearance

House clearance can include removal of household items, furniture, white goods and personal belongings. These can be either recycled, stored or disposed of at appropriate local authority recycling centres. Secure Empty Property is a licenced waste carrier and will issue certificates of recycling to clients upon completion.

Clearance of combustible materials can be an insurance requirement and should be completed and evidenced photographically very quickly to ensure compliance with policy conditions.


Empty property clearance after squatters have been evicted can be a challenge.

Personal belongings, needle sweeps, sharps, graffiti and the accumulation of rubbish can create a site unsuitable for re-letting and unsafe for refurbishment. Following a specialist risk assessment of the property, a full range property clearance and on-going security services can be deployed quickly and nationwide.

This can include the removal of body fluids, human & animal waste, drug-use ‘sharps’ and other hazardous materials requiring specialist attention with empty property cleaning and sanitisation.

Nationwide service

Secure Empty Property will undertake the appropriate risk assessment and method statements prior to undertaking such works evidencing all activities with images and evidencing the safe disposal of waste by the appropriate organisations as part of our empty property cleaning services.
