We are vacant property specialists
Oaksure Property Protection provides specialised, professional vacant property solutions for commercial, residential and heritage properties.
With extensive experience in securing and maintaining unoccupied buildings and working with owners to mitigate empty business rates, we pride ourselves in providing a complete end-to-end service for empty properties.
Oaksure Property Protection provides a vacant property solution that covers all three key problems of empty property: security, high vacant property rates and the risk of dilapidation.
Oaksure provides vacant property security using SIA qualified guards. Our guards are contracted to live on-site to protect vacant property. Live-in guards are the most effective means of preventing unlawful occupation. We protect by occupation. By temporarily occupying a vacant property it ceases to be a target for squatters who search solely for unoccupied buildings. Squatters cannot take possession of occupied property.
Assigning live-in guards to the property ensures the building is regularly patrolled and security concerns can be addressed immediately. Since the guards live on-site they actively move around the property and are intimately aware of the potential threats. Unlike static guards deployed on regular patrols, our live-in guards have a vested interest in ensuring the building has the highest possible level of security. They get to know the building they protect and its neighbourhood and can thus anticipate the challenges it might face.
REDUCED BUSINESS RATES AND LOWERED SECURITY COSTS
We are revolutionising the cost of vacant property. Not only is our live-in security model extremely effective, it is also highly cost efficient. We provide a superior service at a lower cost. We charge a flat-rate management fee, making our vacant property protection services up to 95% cheaper than static security guards, 60% cheaper than metal screens and 50% cheaper than mobile patrols or CCTV with alarm response.
Oaksure Property Protection also reduces empty business rates by around 90%. We undertake the entire application process on behalf of our clients and work with the regulator to achieve a temporary change in rating status. The methods we employ are fully compliant with Valuation Office regulation therefore removing the risk of ratings disputes
We provide excellent protection against a building deteriorating due to vacancy. Our guards are on-site every day throughout the properties we protect enabling us to immediately report and address any maintenance issues. This protects vacant property from damage that can lead to dilapidation and extend the period the asset is unproductive.
We maintain by occupation. Occupying a building is the most effective way to prevent mould, leaks, burst pipes, internal condensation and pests such as pigeons, bees or wasps.
The activities of our guards are insured for up to £10 million.
