Summer’s here, and while you might be more concerned with making sure you’ve got enough sunscreen and spending money for your December holidays, I suggest you also spend a little time making sure your home will be protected while you’re away soaking up the sun.

After all, we can replace your flat screen, but we can’t replace the memories that come from priceless family heirlooms. Like your gran’s ceramic collection of bikini-wearing pigs.

  1. Arrange for a trustworthy house sitter
  2. Tell your neighbours and your security company that you’re going away
  3. Clear up your garden

Don’t leave things like ladders, spades or other tools that could be used to assist would-be burglars breaking into your home. Lock these inside when you go away, and don’t make it easier for the rogues.

  • Put your lights on a timer

If it’s possible, put your exterior lights on a timer. That way, even if you haven’t got someone staying at your home, your house will still look occupied from the street.

  • Pack away your valuables

Make sure high value items are not visible from outside the house.
