Don’t Make It Easy For Them

The hours of darkness are gradually lengthening and criminal activity increases. Check how secure your property is; security systems, lighting (external & internal), door & window locks, property marking, neighbours.  If your property is left unoccupied because of holidays or regular absence, consider removing valuable items or items of sentimental value. Keep insurance up to date.
