Property Security for Landlords
As a property owner, perhaps the greatest hazard you face is from squatters and the prospect of public liability claims. Under the Occupier’s Liability Act, there is a duty of care placed on you to protect the public from any dangers on your premises. In short, you must take ‘all reasonable steps’ to protect ‘visitors’, both authorised and unauthorised. This includes squatters. Guardians of London has the solution, by providing property security for landlords.
Our service will save you money while, at the same time, maximising the security of your property. By using Guardians of London, you could save as much as 50% against boarding up your building with unsightly metal sheeting and 80% against hiring in expensive security guard firms.
Unlike most security options, Guardians of London does not impose lengthy notice periods. If you would like us to place carefully vetted Guardians of London guardians in your property, just give us 24 hours’ notice, subject to the initial site visit and survey. When you need the guardians to vacate the property, we only need a minimum of 16 days’ notice and we can hand your property back to you, often in a better condition.
