Extreme freezing weather conditions in recent years have produced subzero temperatures for prolonged periods in the UK. With the Met Office publishing yellow and amber warnings across the mainland in December and temperatures plummeting to -10ºc in some parts of the UK*, it has become a priority for many to protect their properties. *Evening Standard: http://bit.ly/2Bh8NZF
Adverse weather conditions can lead to an increased chance of burst pipes and leaks within vacant properties, which the Association of British Insurers (ABI) advise claims could cost in excess of £7500 per incident; not to mention the subsequent expensive repair bill.
So what’s the solution?
In order to comply with empty premises insurance conditions, property managers or pretty much anyone responsible for vacant property need to ensure that all unoccupied premises are drained down and water isolated between November and March.
That’s where we come in
