DSRM provide the most cost effective way to secure your vacant property from unauthorised entry, vandalism and squatters.

Empty commercial and residential properties create a risk-related challenge for property owners, investors and developers. Whether a property is vacant for one day, 6 months or more, the risks increase and so does the potential for expensive delays, legal costs and damages. In addition, a property being vacant for more than 30 days can affect certain aspects of the property insurance. With changes to the squatting laws, commercial property is now at a particular risk of squatting. Additionally, there is the common and constant risk of intrusion to vandalise and steal valuable fixtures and fittings. DSRM offers a full range of physical and electronic security solutions that are tailor-made to offer a cost-effective solution that ensures your asset is protected. The services offered by DSRM exceed the standards set down by all the major insurers and ensure that our clients meet all of their insurance and public liability obligations.

In the current financial climate insolvency is the unfortunate outcome for some commercial ventures that fail to weather the storm. Such insolvencies can result in vacant properties of all sizes and type. DSRM provides a range of accredited services, recognised by the Police and insurance companies, aimed at protecting vacant properties that are in administration or receivership.

The scale of the work required varies, but can be significant if, for example, a chain of retail outlets goes into administration. We understand that in such circumstances our professional clients require a bespoke service that will lead to all the vacant properties being secured promptly and for them to stay secure until such time as the legal processes have been completed. We will speedily fulfil the initial safeguarding of the buildings and contents, and then, following a full inspection and risk assessment, set about the process of making the buildings secure, maintaining a high level of daily security through continual monitoring.

Any empty property can quickly become a target for vandals or thieves looking for easy-pickings, and with today’s high scrap prices we often hear of homes stripped of copper piping and internal wiring, leaving the property owner with thousands of pounds worth of damage and major upheaval to put it right.

We can supply a property guardian or operatives for premises that are empty, safeguarding them from unwelcome visitors and ensuring your property is treated with the utmost respect at all times. Our live-in or out guardians or operatives are carefully vetted over and above the British Standards 7858 and are currently employed – ensuring our property guardians or operatives are responsible and trusted individuals who have your property’s protection and condition best interests at heart.

We will find the most suitable property guardian or operative for your London property who will live in /out for as long as you need – and we have guardians and operatives ready to move with just few hours’ notice.

Our mission is to protect and preserve the substantial investment our clients have made in their properties until they are brought back into use, sold or demolished.

Our service begins with a free, no-obligation site risk assessment, enabling us to identify specific risks to your property and advise you on the most suitable solutions to ensure the on-going security of your asset.

In order to do this we carefully vet and select our property guardians from a pool of reliable and trustworthy working professionals and we place them into vacant properties for a temporary period of time.

DSRM protects high end properties for property owners at a fraction of the cost in comparison to concierge security officers due to our dynamic security solution.

As part of our service, we also provide full facilities management for every aspect of your property. Whether that is swimming pool maintenance to complicated boiler system upgrades to fire alarm system servicing to high specification cleaning, we ensure that your property is kept at the high standard you require, all year long.
