Police attendance checks at a property prior to purchase.

Police attendance checks at a property prior to purchase.

I have in the back of my mind that it is possible to get information on the number of a police call outs to a property. police box

This is potentially of interest to those considering purchasing a property and want some peace of mind concerning the vulnerability of the property to intruders/criminals.

Has anyone heard of this or have any information on it?

Thanks

Chris

Hi Chris,

I have included above a link to our property research tool that has a police report per post code which I hope helps 🙂

Hi Neil. Thanks for that. What I am really keen to be able to do is to get the date for a specific address...just the number of police call outs and not the reasons.

The reason is that I have my eye on a castle of a place and have become unnerved by the recent appearance of a "Beware of the dog" sign even though there is no dog at the property. I realise the possible deterrant value of a sign even without a dog but also 100 meters up trhe stree I noticed a group of bare footed eastern europeans loitering and came to a conclusion. The place in question is out in the sticks so presumably it is on the radar of local hoodlums. Chris

Thanks Neil - this is fantastic! It has immediately stopped an interest that we were showing in a property.
