by Digital Media Manager

Orbis Protect, the UK leader in vacant property, asset security and people protection services, has become the latest organisation to join the Association of Short Term Lenders (ASTL) as an Associate Member.

For more than 40 years, Orbis has specialised in securing and maintaining vacant property on a national basis and is now the leading provider of void property solutions, site security and lone worker services throughout the UK. In August 2022, Orbis acquired Veritas Property Management, a leading specialist void services provider, resulting in a wider service offering and greater national coverage for their customers.

The ASTL, which is the only trade association dedicated to representing the interests of short-term lenders and their customers, now has approaching 50 Associate Members and more than 40 lender Members.

Tim Hancock, Strategic Commercial Director at Orbis, says:

“At Orbis, we’re here for the entire lifecycle of a property, with the expertise and ability to evict, secure, clean, monitor and protect from any intrusions. We have the capacity to cope with the largest national frameworks and portfolios, whilst still retaining our inherent customer focus and our ability to react swiftly to client requests.

Our customer-centric approach has meant that we’ve doubled in size over the last three years, investing millions into our infrastructure, technology and people to best serve our customers. We’re delighted to be accepted as an Associate Member of the ASTL and look forward to building new relationships with lenders and helping to secure more properties with our wide range of services.”

Vic Jannels, CEO of the ASTL, says:

“I’m really pleased to welcome Orbis as the latest organisation to become an associate member of the ASTL. Short term lending is a vital cog in the property industry, providing a funding solution for a wide variety of circumstances, and it’s important that we work closely with other associated businesses to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible experience for customers. This is why associate members are so important to the ASTL, and our growing membership reflects the increasing number of like-minded businesses that want to demonstrate a commitment to high standards.”
