The Organisers Property & Relocation team launched our unique Home Watch service after a rise in the number of squatting incidents in the UK. Home Watch is a household care and security service specifically designed to provide you with peace of mind while you are away from your property.
Under British law, squatting is legislated as a civil offence and not a criminal act, leaving the police powerless to take direct action. It can lead to theft and damage to the property, which causes homeowners considerable distress and a great deal of inconvenience.
One of our specialist team can visit your home on a regular basis to ensure there is nothing to jeopardise its integrity. This visit not only ensures the security of the property, but discourages squatters and burglars by giving the impression of occupancy.
As part of the Home Watch services, we will carry out a squatters risk assessment analysis of your property and create a bespoke service plan. We can also carry out daily household services, such as sorting mail, cleaning, pet care and maintenance work.
The benefits of the Home Watch service can include:
- Squatters risk assessment analysis
- Intruder access analysis
- Regular visits
- Security installation
- Maintenance work
- Emergency repairs
- Utility call out in case of a gas leak, fire or flood
- Insurance policy management
- Complete household management
- Mail management and forwarding
- Top-to-bottom cleaning
- Pet care
We are trusted key holders and have been helping clients with all aspects of property management since 1998. We never outsource our Home Watch visits to third parties. All of our staff undergo a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly CRB) and sign a strict confidentiality agreement. We are the only concierge service bearing the London & Partners kitemark, which is awarded to vetted companies considered expert in their field.
