All manner of problems can affect commercial properties from invasion by squatters and attacks from vandals and graffiti artists to interest from arsonists, thieves and other criminals. According to insurance company Aviva, £2 billion of damage is done to property in the UK through vandalism and arson, with 25 per cent relating to vacant properties. The Association of British Insurers estimates that £3.4 million of damage is done to British businesses through fire every day while the British Chambers of Commerce states that the cost of crime against business every year amounts to £12.6 billion.
