Buildings at Risk: Securing vacant property

This CPD whitepaper will discuss best practice in managing and securing vacant properties and the use of property guardian services to protect them.

This whitepaper will discuss best practice in managing and securing vacant properties

The time for taking action to secure a building is when it becomes vacant or when signs of vandalism or water damage appear. Dereliction brings about diminution of the asset value of the building itself, and a blighting effect on the surrounding area which will in turn accelerate falling asset value.

The risks of vacancy can apply to public, commercial and residential properties, construction sites and open land. They also occur at different points in a property’s life cycle, such as prior to first occupancy, during refurbishment or development, following damage, during temporary or long-term vacancy or when properties are derelict or awaiting demolition.

New forms of innovation, entrepreneurship and property management structures are needed, particularly to find temporary uses for empty and derelict buildings. Camelot Europe have created a Whitepaper which discusses best practice in managing and securing vacant properties and the use of property guardian services to protect them.
