Here at Just Landlords we like to keep our finger on the pulse of all areas of the property market, and that even includes watching trends in property crime. So, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the crime hotspots of the UK and where you should be extra sure you have a good insurance policy!
Check out our new infographic below highlighting the burglary hotspots of the UK as well as some interesting facts about property crime:
As you can see, areas of London’s Stoke Newington is the worst when it comes to burglaries, but it is actually locations in Yorkshire that appear the most on the list, with areas in Doncaster, Bradford and Leeds all appearing in the top 10.
It is also interesting to see that 44% of all burglaries are made during the day (so much for the cover of darkness!) and 14% of burglaries are made by women.
So what do you think to our new infographic? Do you live in one of these hotspots? And are you surprised by the areas that have made the list?
