Care Direct - Protection of Property Service

What does it do?

We ask for your permission to enter the property to:

  • arrange for any animals to be looked after
  • take small valuable items such as cash, cheque or benefit books for safe keeping
  • make an inventory of the contents of large items, such as furniture
  • ensure your home is left secure
  • let the police know the property is not occupied
  • arrange for any bills to be paid, usually from your own funds.
