In essence, Keyholding is the responsibility to hold keys for a predetermined property or portfolio of properties for the purpose of being able to respond and attend either to an emergency alarm response or even a pre-planned visit.
Unfortunately emergency call outs, due to their nature, can be at any time, without any prior warning, and generally occur at the worst possible time for the Keyholder which generally would be out of normal working hours and more normally in the middle of the night.
With the advent of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 in addition to the possible implications of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 in relation to the Duty of Care of Lone Working, it has become increasingly more favourable for landlords, owners, property managers and those responsible for the welfare and management of their staff to out-source this function.
Keyholding can take a number of forms and all keyholding services are provided as full 24 / 7 coverage, 365 days of the year.
Ambrosia Management Services will hold the keys to your property and we will respond to all callouts whether they be an Alarm Response or a pre-planned attendance.
