We were able to reduce empty business rates on this property from £136,000 to £7,200 per annum, saving our client more than 90%. We took over security from another firm, providing a more comprehensive service and saving our client £600 per week on security costs. The property contained some derelict units and had suffered from being targeted by squatters. When tenants left the building in preparation for construction squatters had moved in.
We placed live-in guards on-site to protect the vacant units and carry out regular inspections of the derelict units. Our single security solution simplified our clients’ management of the property and also saved them thousands on renting metal screens and paying for other fortifications.
Our guards also maintained the piping infrastructure and the courtyard. This arrangement meant the owner could take more time trying to sell the building without the financial pressure of high business rates and extortionate security costs. Oaksure security meant that it was no longer necessary to gut the building to obtain long-term rate relief saving our client more time and money. Our clients’ final decision was to undertake construction themselves and we continue to provide security for the duration of these works.
