Vacancy Clause: Every property insurance policy has it. In today's day and age, property owners are starting to pay attention to that vacancy clause (Insurance Adjusters are doing the same). Should something happen while you're away (and your home was not being checked on) the likelihood of your insurance company honoring your claim is slim-to-none. As many property owners move away from asking a friend or family member for a favor concerning their most valuable asset and look to a professional service with Liability Insurance.
Crime: A vacant home is a vulnerable home, vacant homes are extremely easy to pick off. Thieves have a multitude of different ways they identify the tell tale signs that you're away. That's where we come in. We create presence. A professional Home Watch service is your peace of mind that everything is secure while you're away. The assurance with your policy holder that due diligence was done and there is documented proof in the event there is a claim.
Privacy: Loose lips sink ships. We maintain, the less people that know you're going away, the better. When you contract a professional Home Watch, you're assured complete privacy.
