Following and satisfying the insurance requirements of the UK’s largest underwriters, including AXA, HSBC, Willis and Insolvency Risk Services, our nationwide team of mobile Void Property Inspectors are ticking all the boxes and protecting landlords’ investments up and down the country.
These weekly patrols by our officers also provide and maintain an ongoing and visible presence at your property and enable a pro-active response to the common problems suffered by vacant properties.
In addition, as your key holders, Umbrella officers can also act as an escort to accompany contractors, agents and visitors wishing to visit the property.
