There’s no such thing as a bad time to think about making your home more secure.

Intruders operate all year round. But there are certain points on the calendar when taking additional precautions and reviewing the safeguards in place assume even greater importance.

This is one such time, because research has discovered that more break-ins occur in November than during any other month. This is a peak period for burglars, who will be busier than ever during the coming fortnight.

Compiled using police data, the LV= Home Insurance research has found that on average, a home in the UK is broken into every two minutes during November. The darker nights tend to aid and encourage those responsible. It’s time to act.

Yes, intruders are out there. Yes, our homes are at risk. Yes, this is a problem. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing we can do about it. Far from it, in fact. To be forewarned is to be forearmed and we share such things not to cause panic, but to underline that certain precautions can be taken and that it pays to be prepared.

The latest crime figures suggest burglaries are becoming less frequent in the UK as a whole, showing that the message is getting through. But in certain areas, break-ins are still on the increase and we can’t afford to become complacent.

Those living in ground floor and basement flats are at the greatest risk, whilst burglars prefer to strike during the daytime when properties are unoccupied. There is a great deal that can be done to reduce the dangers and lessen such instances. This is what we’re here for.
