Holiday Home Security
Now that the Christmas season is over, we all seem to be looking towards our summer holidays and Norfolk has no end of holiday homes available to those who want to get away. But as an owner of a holiday home, what could be worse than your home manager or tenants phoning you to say the property has been broken into? The amount of break-ins I have been attending in Norfolk is on the rise and holiday homes are no exception.
As a generalisation, it also seems that many holiday home owners have sub-standard locks fitted. But nowadays, more people want to bring their electronics with them on holiday and what better way to attract customers than to offer better security for their devices than the competition? If I were heading for a day out on the broads, I would want to know that my laptop, mobile phone ,mp3 player and all the other bits were safe while I was out.
So next time you visit your holiday home, treat it as the investment it is supposed to be and check all locks are kite marked to ensure they comply with the strictest of insurance compliance. All windows on ground and at least first floors should have working locks. Sash windows should also have lockable jammers that allow ventilation but not open far enough for small children to fall out.
It is also important to advertise that your home is protected. Something as cheap as a dummy CCTV camera should be enough to put off the vandals, while a good alarm system will make sure you are informed via text message if your home is broken into. What s more, the cost of installing an alarm or CCTV is a valid business expense and therefore the cost can be offset against tax, while giving you an extra selling point when advertising your holiday home, so it s a complete win-win situation.
