Whether you plan to holiday in the UK or jet off somewhere more exotic this year, the last thing you want to worry about is the security of your property while you’re away. What could be better than setting off secure in the knowledge that a professional organisation is keeping a watchful eye on your home in your absence? The Keyholding Company (KHC) provides its members with a safe, cost-effective service that does just that.

Figures from the Metropolitan Police Service* show that during the summer months while many of us may be away relaxing, it’s one of the busiest times for burglars! The KHC’s HouseCheck service helps to ward off potential intruders by making sure that the property has that ‘lived-in’ look.

On your authority, a KeyWarden can physically visit your property and ensure that everything is safe and secure. They will check both internal and external security, switch lights on and off, clear post away from the doormat, and if required, feed animals and water plants, both inside and outside the house. The HouseCheck service can be fully tailored to suit the individual’s needs and the KeyWarden will be happy to discuss any additional requests (e.g. forwarding important post).

KHC can also act as a keyholder for your alarm system and respond 24 hours a day if it is activated, so not only do you return to a secure property - you will have content neighbours as well! The KeyWarden will also check for any possible signs of damage, such as a burst pipe and if necessary, arrange and provide access for their own fully vetted and competitive contractors.

On registering your keys for £24 and becoming a Member for just £6 per month, they will safeguard a set of your property keys and be available 24hrs a day, 365 days per year, so you can use them from wherever you are in the world, no matter what time of day or night. If you’re lying by the pool and you think of something you would like done, simply give them a call or email them with your request.

The company is industry regulated and all keys are kept unmarked in a keysafe and released only by use of the Member's password.

*Figures from the Metropolitan Police Service show that during the summer months (June-August) of 2003 they recorded a peak of 6035 residential burglary offences taking place in August which represents an average of 215 burglaries taking place in Greater London each day in August.
