At Taybar Security, we provide vacant property inspections 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We also provide vacant property security services as part of our keyholding and mobile patrols security package to safeguard your empty property.
Building and business insurance companies require void property inspections in their terms and conditions to ensure compliance with health and safety regulations. By conducting such inspections, building staff and the public are protected from risks and hazards that may be present in the premises. Inspections also serve to confirm the property’s structural integrity and its contents.
Leaving vacant properties unsupervised attracts thieves, vandals, trespassers and anti-social opportunists that can make such properties hard to insure.
Our recruitment process ensures that only the most qualified and competent security officers join the Taybar Security team. All our security guards must be approved and licensed by the SIA (Security Industry Authority) and we insist that every member of staff undergoes a thorough background check.
We are proud to be both NSI Gold Guarding accredited and certified members of ACS Pacesetters. Taybar Security is recognised as one of the very best contract security guarding companies in the United Kingdom.
Lock and unlock staff also need to have at least five years of experience in the field. We have high standards, and we make sure to meet them every time.
We are an SIA approved contractor, so you can have the peace of mind knowing that our security guards are of the highest calibre. The SIA is the regulatory body of the UK’s private security industry. It is also an executive non-departmental public agency sponsored by the Home Office.

What you can expect from Taybar’s Vacant Property Security
Whenever we take on a new client for vacant property inspection and security services, we look to build rock-solid business relationships founded on professionalism and quality. We earn your trust through a commitment to protect client assets and maintain client confidentiality. We lend a personal touch through every step of the process, from providing a free quote to inspecting and securing your vacant property.
As part of Taybar Security’s vacant property inspection service, we will inspect:
Your property’s exterior for potential breaches or damage
Car parks, annexes, and adjacent property for trespassers engaging in antisocial behaviour
For signs of littering, fly-tipping, or any improper waste disposal at your property
Your property’s doors and windows to see if they’re secure and haven’t been breached
Fire escapes and alarms to see if they are in good working order
Your property’s interiors and potential for water, fire, or electrical damage risks
As and when required, we will install remote tags at various points across your property. These touchpoints will then be scanned and logged by the patrolling officer, ensuring that a thorough search is carried out each and every time.
At Taybar, we go beyond just providing security personnel and will help you plan for any eventuality, including:
Meeting with any contractors, if required, on site
Providing comprehensive reports that highlight issues or risks that need to be addressed
Offering 24/7 security on both temporary, short-term, and long-term contracts
To avoid predictability and maintain effectiveness, Taybar Security property inspections will take place at random times each day.
We will cover both the interior and exterior of your vacant property with our Mobile Patrol security services. Our security guards will follow carefully designed random patrol routes that criminals can’t discern or predict.
Your keys will be placed inside industry-regulated sealed pouches for safekeeping. We can also deploy a rapid response team to your property at any time of the day thanks to our 24-hour control centre connected to your alarm system.
For properties with CCTV monitoring systems in place, Taybar Security are able to offer a CCTV response service. If your staff notice something that doesn’t look right, we’re on hand to protect and secure your premises.
Every possible point-of-access to your vacant property will be thoroughly checked and locked down by our expert security team. We will also be there promptly should you need to gain access to your property.

- Frequently Asked Questions -
HOW CAN YOU SECURE A VACANT PROPERTY?
We can secure your vacant property through multiple fronts.
Security alarm response
Remote Tag installation
Manned site security
A combination of all these services will serve you best in securing our vacant property, especially for commercial types that get attention from experienced criminals who know how to bypass virtual surveillance.
DO I NEED SECURITY FOR MY VACANT PROPERTY?
Yes, effective security is a necessity for vacant properties. Uninhabited premises are often seen as easy pickings by criminals, vandals and squatters. Without a daily presence, these properties are frequently broken into, with contents being stolen or destroyed. Trespassers may leave waste around the area, defacing the exterior and reducing property value. Without vacant property protection, these crimes can go unnoticed for days or even weeks by the owners.
You will also have to deal with the hassle of making a claim from your insurance company if you don’t take proper care in securing your vacant property.
WHAT ARE THE SECURITY RISKS FOR A VACANT PROPERTY?
The risks are many and great for vacant properties, including but not limited to:
Illegal and suspicious activity
The longer a property remains vacant, the higher the risk of such acts being perpetrated on the property. There are also indirect risks to leaving vacant property unsecured, such as property prices in the area being impacted as a result of crimes being committed in the vacant property.
