We are vacant property specialists
Oaksure Property Protection provides specialised, professional vacant property services for commercial, residential and heritage properties. We use security guards and property guardians to secure property at short notice.
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 business 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 guarantee to reduce your management and security costs. We are revolutionising the cost of vacant property. We provide a superior service at a lower cost. This is made possible by our innovative method of placing guards to live on-site rather than merely operating in shifts and carrying out regular patrols. In this way the costs of having the guards on-site are radically reduced and their motivation to protect the property is increased. We charge a flat-rate management fee, making our vacant property protection services up to 90% 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 the highest level of 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. Our live-in guards get to know the properties they protect intimately and thus notice maintenance issues before further damage can be done to the property. This protects vacant property from becoming dilapidated and helps ensure that a property is ready for new tenants to begin occupation. We aim to help minimise the period your 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.
