Vacant Property Maintenance and Regeneration

Keeping neighbourhoods secure, safe and tidy

Orbis’ acclaimed vacant property maintenance services help to reduce security related vacant property problems and areas marked for regeneration. We work in partnership with many social landlords and emergency services to help keep areas safe, clear and clean.

Our maintenance services cover the whole vacant property lifecycle. Once our experts have undertaken an initial property inspection, we provide a comprehensive vacant property maintenance programme, designed to ensure that your properties are secure, compliant and cared for.

Orbis’ inspections highlight potential risks to vulnerable properties, small repairs are undertaken immediately by our trained teams to maintain the standard within the area, real-time updates provided within our vacant property management portal Aura. While any larger projects are discussed with the property owner. This way, we maintain the value and re-let potential of the empty property and ensure the landlord’s statutory obligations are met.
