Global Solutions provide a short term void security solution as part as our holistic approach to vacant property security solutions. Our caretaker service is a solution which we can provide to property owners of buildings which are empty for short term contracts or when the building is being prepared for property guardians to move into.
We utilise professional caretakers who reside inside the property in order to ensure it’s safe and secure over a 24/7 period. Caretakers will ensure the building premises are kept tidy whilst they ‘live’ at the site. They will also have direct access to company management when/if any problems arise such as attempted break ins and squatting attempts. This will also allow the property owner to have instantaneous access to the site, as the caretaker will be available.
We also ensure that the caretaker’s name and contact details are logged with the police, which will save vast amounts of time.
By utilising our Caretaker service for short term void properties which are secured on a temporary basis. Your site will be protected and made impenetrable to intruders, thieves, vandals and squatters. If required, our Caretaker service can also be used with empty buildings prior to property guardians moving in, whilst they are in a large commercial building site especially where there are large can parking or warehousing areas as well as during the vulnerable period when our property guardians vacate a property at the end of our contract.
Global Solutions provided a fast, efficient, end-to-end SIA Security Guard service that was exemplary.
The SIA Security Guards provide full security to several commercial properties in our portfolio across the Borough. On top of this the grounds and internal areas of the buildings are well maintained and the reporting is regular and comprehensive, with the site returned to us clean, clear and on time. We would unreservedly recommend Global Solutions and continue to utilise their services on numerous vacant properties.
Global Solutions were extremely supportive in their approach to assisting me secure my buildings with Caretakers.
They protected two large warehouse buildings in Hackney Wick and prevented squatters and travellers from accessing the site.
I cannot recommend Global Solutions highly enough and would be delighted to work with them again.
Global Solutions provided an extremely rapid and well-coordinated bailiff service to evict over 30 squatters from our Church property.
We were provided with a full briefing on the property prior to the eviction taking place. This included a full site survey, which scoped out the amount of squatters occupying the building, their movements, time patterns and access points. Once the plan was agreed Global Solutions moved quickly to coordinate locksmiths, bailiffs, a full maintenance team and local police in order to remove the squatters with minimal fuss.
We had previously used a different company and they failed to gain possession.
With Global Solutions everything was well-coordinated with military precision and we now have our Church property back under our control.
Here is a story about what can be done with vacant properties if developers have the appetite to invest time and money into bringing them back into use.
The developer in question spent £1.8m on one of the ‘worst buildings he has ever redeveloped’ but has brought a dilapidated east Hull building back to life as a hotel and restaurant.
