    How long is it likely to be empty for

    Can I ask where abouts it is vague area is fine

    It may well be prone to being squatted, I dont wish that on you.

    Jowos suggestions are good. A timer is of absolutely no importance im afraid a squatter can sense them a mile off.

    All depends what sort of area it is in and whether the location makes it vulnerable.
    :beer: Well aint funny how its the little things in life that mean the most? Not where you live, the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes.
    Theres no dollar sign on piece of mind
    This Ive come to know...
    So if you agree have a drink with me, raise your glasses for a toast :beer:
