How To Prevent Squatters

It's any homeowners worst case scenario to be dealing with squatters in your property. But there are ways in which you can avoid this potential nightmare. We list DIY tips which can help you avoid squatters from taking over your property. 

Below are precautions landlords/property owners can take to help avoid squatters on your premise:

  • Keep your property secure when it is unoccupied

  • Vacant premises can attract a higher insurance premium, so make sure you are aware of the measures that are required for a vacant property

  • Give the impression that the property is occupied for example - have curtains or blinds, have a neighbour visits, leave radios on, and lights on a timer

  • Fence off or barricade vacant property

  • If necessary provide a security patrol

  • Ensure that you make regular visits in person so you are monitoring your premise

  • If you do find individuals occupying your property without your consent contact the police immediately
