Since the outbreak of the pandemic, many people have been holding off on major life changes such as moving house. However, as life has pretty much returned to normal, more and more people are now making plans to move. If you’re one of those people, it’s important not to overlook security when looking for your new home. By considering home security early on, you can save yourself a lot of stress and expense down the line.
• Here are a few things to keep in mind when assessing the safety and security of a potential property:
• Ask locals about the area – their local knowledge can be invaluable.
• Consider the safety of the area at night – it can be very different from the daytime.
• Check if the property has a security system, and if so, how reliable it is.
• Look for security lighting around the property.
• If the property has a burglar alarm, ensure you receive the code and manual from the previous owners. If the alarm hasn’t been serviced recently, arrange for a service appointment.
• If there is no alarm system, consider having one installed to prevent potential break-ins.
• Organise home insurance coverage as soon as possible, and ensure you have adequate coverage for your needs.
• Don’t forget to check garages, sheds, and outbuildings where you might store valuable items like bikes and sports equipment. Consider installing an alarm system for added protection.
• Security lighting is a simple and cost-effective way to enhance your home security. If the property doesn’t have outside lights, consider having them installed.
