Ensuring Safety and Security: How Global Guardians Prevents Squatting Risks

In light of recent events where a squatting situation in a London semi-detached house led to a tragic fire with fatal consequences, property owners are increasingly aware of the risks associated with unoccupied properties. At Global Guardians, our mission is to prevent such incidents by providing comprehensive property protection solutions that not only secure empty properties but also ensure they are responsibly managed and maintained.
The Risks of Unoccupied Properties: Empty properties attract a range of security risks including squatting, vandalism, and theft. These risks can lead to severe consequences, such as the unfortunate incident in London where unauthorized occupants posed not only a danger to themselves but also to the surrounding community. Such situations highlight the critical need for effective security and property management.
Global Guardians’ Approach to Property Security:
  1. Property Guardianship:
    • Preventive Occupation: By placing vetted guardians in unoccupied properties, we ensure that these spaces are actively used and cared for, significantly reducing the risk of squatting and associated hazards.
    • Regular Inspections: Our guardians are required to maintain the property and report any issues, ensuring that the property remains in good condition and any risks are managed promptly.
  1. Comprehensive Security Assessments:
    • Risk Identification: We conduct thorough assessments of each property to identify and mitigate potential security risks.
    • Customised Security Plans: Based on the assessment, we develop a tailored security plan that includes physical security measures and regular monitoring.
  1. 24/7 Monitoring and Response:
    • Surveillance Systems: Our guardians living on site provide real-time surveillance of the vacant property.
    • Emergency Response: Our quick response team is ready to address any security breaches immediately, ensuring that issues are handled swiftly to prevent escalation.
  1. Community Engagement:
    • Local Collaboration: We work closely with local communities and authorities to maintain a safe environment around the properties we manage.
    • Awareness Programmes: By educating locals about the benefits of property guardianship, we foster a community watch culture that further secures the area.
The Benefits of Choosing Global Guardians: Choosing Global Guardians means more than just securing an empty property; it’s about ensuring peace of mind for property owners and enhancing safety for the community. Our guardianship solution:
  • Prevents legal complications associated with squatters.
  • Protects the asset value of the property by maintaining its condition.
