Empty Houses are a burglar’s delight and dogs, cats, indeed all our furry or feathered friends are happiest in their own environment, following their usual routines.

So the Home Service Ltd employs trustworthy animal loving people nationwide to live in your house when you go away, taking over its management and providing care and companionship for the animals.

 

The presence of our Guardians is a real deterrent to burglars, vandals and squatters. Which is why we also work for property companies and look after houses awaiting probate.

There are many aspects to Home Service’s unique and personal approach to house sitting (and the Guardians we employ), most of which are described in the Rules page and the Scale of charges. You’ll find answers to most of your questions there, but if you don’t and wish to speak to someone directly, call Susie, Maria or Hilary on 01394 450 865 or 08451 303 100 anytime between 9.30am and 4pm on weekdays.

In an emergency phone the 24 hour helpline 07766 664763.

Susie Johnston - Founder of The Home Service Ltd:

“I learnt the value of having house sitters when I went on holiday with my husband to Portugal for 2 weeks in 1995 and returned to find our isolated house ransacked and emptied of its valuables and furniture. Thanks to Suffolk Police most of our possessions were returned, but we vowed not to let it happen again. Our two dogs were extremely happy to be home from kennels, too.

Having seen for ourselves the benefits offered by professional house-sitting, we recognised a good investment opportunity and set up from scratch in 1997. We now have, over the intervening years, successfully completed around 70,000 assignment days and amassed a faithful body of regular clients. It’s hard work, but the many ‘thank you’ letters and calls we get make it particularly rewarding”.
