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.

The presence of a uniformed guard or alarm response team will immediately deter any unwanted vandalism, squatters, trespassers or unauthorised visitors.
As experts in empty property management we can provide different levels of guarding and manned security from a single uniformed guard to multiple personnel or K9 dog patrols at very short notice throughout the UK.
Following a specialist risk assessment of the property, a full range property clearance and on-going security services can be deployed quickly and nationwide.
Removal and recycling of unwanted items in an empty property or site can come in many forms. From a simple change of tenancy flat or house clearance through to removal of hazardous waste or fly-tipping, Secure Empty Property can help.
Live-in Guardians are a cost effective alternative to traditional guarding and can complement Secure Empty Property’s physical and electronic security responses.
Property guardians live normal working lives. They provide free of charge protection and give a lived-in feel to the building – residential or commercial. We can also install an alarm system to the vacant property for additional security when the guardian is out at work.
When a property is in our care, we provide much more than just security.
We can support the landlord or asset manager with a wide range of planned and responsive / emergency services – nationwide. We take the headache out of managing property portfolios by providing a one-stop-shop for all maintenance, repairs and facilities management.
