Locking up Service
At close of business, Keysure guards will ensure the property is empty, including the fire exits, check for any fire hazards and set all the alarms. Keysure operates with strict security regulations in order to guarantee professional protection of your assets and staff.
Vacant property inspections are a very efficient way to monitor empty properties, building and grounds condition, including notification of any ﬂy tipping or events of vandalism on the site.
Damage to property can reduce its sale or rental value so reporting unnoticed damage or decay early ensures the necessary repairs are carried out in a timely manner rather than allow a few small problems to escalate into a major ﬁnancial loss.

Vacant site inspections can be carried out on as regularly as required. The Keysure guard will compile a report after each visit and send it to the client. These reports can be invaluable to a client in evaluating any threat from vandalism or property decay and measures can be put in place to counteract these threats.
Depending on your individual needs, we can arrange for a Keysure guard to attend to the site, so they can grant access for any authorised individuals, or to carry out a comprehensive inspection of your property. The guard will also check for any leaks or water damage, they can take meter readings if required and check for any electrical or fire hazards. Our guard will also ensure that all windows and doors are locked securely and that all alarms are fully engaged with no faults showing.
