What is the highest risk area for a home burglary in London?
According to the Office of National Statistics there is a successful burglary every 76 seconds, with an average cost to homeowners of more than £2,000 per incident. There is some good news. Domestic burglary rates have been falling in England and Wales since 1995, however, there are significant seasonal variations and postcode hotspots for crime.

Beware of what you say – Don’t openly share with people, for example on social media, details of when you will be away. If an opportunistic burglar hears that your property will be empty, it presents a perfect chance to break in uninterrupted.
Neighbourhood Watch – Taking part in a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or even an informal community arrangement, can help prevent crime in your area. You could ask a neighbour to watch your house while you are away, even turning lights on and off or drawing curtains to deter burglars.
