When your property is left vacant, even for a short period of time, there are a number of security measures which we recommend to help reduce theft, arson, squatters and other unauthorised activities.
Any measures put in place will help reduce damage to your property whilst vacant, however many property owners underestimate the catastrophic effect water damage can have on their vacant properties. From burst pipes to metal theft of pipes, the impact of the water ingress can be significant, and is often not covered by insurance if a system drain down has not been implemented.
Umbrella is the expert in the vacant property market and is on hand to provide cost effective solutions to reduce potential damage to vacant properties. Drain down and reinstatement services are a cost effective preventative measure and include the drain down of all water systems, as well as the switching off of other utilities such as gas and electricity services.
