Void and Vacant Property Checklist

Void and Vacant Property Checklist

A Growing Protection Need

With the current COVID-19 crisis increasing its grip and the inevitable and the consequences for normal daily life and the economy we continue to see a growing number of business closures and movement to remote working.

In turn this is resulting in an increasing number of temporarily vacant or void properties.

Though home working and social distancing policies will inevitably help us all through the crisis, unfortunately we cannot just close the doors on our business premises and forget them for the time being and then guarantee that everything will be fine whilst they remain unoccupied.
