Void Property Inspections - Our eyes and ears on your property

Security Management South West Limited offers a valuable service known as “void property inspection.” A void property inspection is a security service designed to protect and monitor vacant or unoccupied properties from potential risks and threats. This service is particularly crucial for properties that are temporarily vacant due to reasons such as moving out, refurbishment, or pending sale.

Key Features of Void Property Inspection:

Physical Presence:

Security personnel from Security Management South West Limited will conduct regular visits to the property to maintain a visible and physical presence, deterring potential intruders or vandals.

Security Checks:

During each inspection, the security team will thoroughly inspect the property’s perimeter, entrances, and windows to identify any signs of attempted break-ins or unauthorized access.

Lock and Alarm Checks:

The security personnel will verify that all doors, windows, and access points are properly locked and secured. They will also check the functionality of security alarms and CCTV systems.

Emergency Response:

In case of any security breaches or emergencies, the security team will take immediate action, alert the relevant authorities, and liaise with the property owner or designated contacts.


After each inspection, Security Management South West Limited will provide a detailed report highlighting the inspection findings, any incidents or suspicious activities observed, and actions taken during the visit.
