Trusted Regina Alarm & security pros at Reed Security Share Their Security Checklist

When you become a Reed Security Group commercial client you will be entering into a relationship - one they want to grow and become long-term. Last year over half of REED Securities business came from word of mouth! REED SECURITY  IS TRUSTED REGINA ALARM and SECURITY expert.

Use this helpful Reed Security checklist to keep the odds of being a victim of break in's in your favour.


1. SHARE INFORMATION 

  • Let your neighbours know if there is unusual activity or crime on your block.
  • Join your local Neighbourhood Group on Facebook and learn about recent activities.
    eg: Neighbourhood Watch
  • Share video and images from your doorbell camera or security cameras.
  • Share information with the Police as it may help with an arrest

 

2. BE SMART

  • Ask all strangers for identification. The person who is “lost” and looking for directions could actually be a burglar checking to see if someone is home.
  • DO NOT advertise on Facebook or Instagram that you are travelling. You may think you’re letting your friends and family know you’re having a great time, but people often forget to change their privacy settings. If you like to post photos - post them after you get back.

3. LOCK YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS

  • Many burglars go door to door looking for targets that forgot to lock their front doors and car doors. Make sure all doors and windows are locked.
  • If you lose a key get the locks changed.
  • A better alternative is to eliminate keys altogether by installing an Alarm.com smart lock with a built-in keypad.
  • Install monitored door and window sensors.
  • When your security system is "armed" an instant alert is sent to your smartphone and our 24/7 Monitoring Stations

4. USE PROPER LIGHTING 

  • Burglars target unoccupied homes so keep your home well lit at night.
  • Install timers that turn lights, radios and televisions on at different times. This gives the appearance that someone is home. 
  • A better option is to install Alarm.com smart lights and smart appliance modules and set them up on an alternating schedule.




 5. INSTALL A SMART SECURITY SYSTEM

  • $0 Smart Security packages range from $34.95/mo. to $79.95/mo. 
  • Protection against intrusion, fire, carbon monoxide, flood, low temperature and more
  • No phone line required
  • Alarm.com smartphone and desktop apps
  • 400% less likely to have a break-in
  • Up to 20% of homeowners insurance - consult your insurance broker

 6. INSTALL SMART CAMERAS

  • Check on your property from Anywhere, Anytime with a doorbell camera
  • Get instant alerts when a person is at the front door
  • Speak to visitors
  • All events are recorded and can be used as evidence
  • Secure your entire property in color 24/7 with our $0 ColorVu Camera Sale

Trusted Regina Real Estate Lawyers at MacKay & McLean Explain The Duty to Disclose

MacKay & McLean provides the professional services of a large Regina law firm, with the intimate attention of a small firm. The legal process can be daunting and overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. MacKay & McLean is with you every step of the way.

MacKay &  McLean are your TRUSTED REGINA LAWYERS. In Mackay & Mclean's latest legal tip they provide helpful information on the duty to disclose in real estate transactions. 


MacKay & McLean Discusses the Duty to Disclose

Buying Regina and are property? Wonder what the obligation on the Seller is to, to be honest? This is called the duty to disclose. 

When buying property, the rule of thumb is caveat emptor or buyer beware.

For this reason, many buyers obtain a home inspection. However, a home inspection may be a double edge sword, as it can negate potential title insurance claims.

The Seller has a duty to disclose latent defects or defects that are not readily observable. Observable defects are generally referred to as ‘patent’ defects. The problem here is that Sellers disputing the claim often claim that they were ‘unaware’ of the defect. This may permit them to escape liability. It is difficult to establish what they did or did not know.

For practical reasons this relegates many to investing in the fix rather than in a law suit.

The failure to disclose a latent defect may entitle a Buyer to collapse a transaction, have it set aside or damages. Please consult a lawyer with respect to your specific situation.

The Property Condition Disclosure Statements that are often included in transactions are somewhat helpful, in that they at least provide some record of the representations made with respect to the property. The MLS listing or web site advertisement, if bought privately, is also very helpful. Lastly, if you are relying on some specific representation, e.g. the ability to build a garage on the property or that the jacuzzi tub works, then make it a term of the contract.

Trusted Regina team brags about Skott Enns as a Trusted Regina Mortgage Broker

The Trusted Regina team is thrilled to brag about our newest Trusted Regina Mortgage Broker. We are thrilled to welcome Skott Enns back to the Trusted Regina Community of business operated with integrity. 



Why does Skott Enns get the thumbs Up from Trusted Regina?



Skott Enns has been a Regina mortgage broker since 2017, and he was voted Regina's Best Mortgage Broker for 2021! That is 8 out of the past 9 years that Skott has been the recipient. If you are looking for free expert mortgage advice from a multi-award-winning, Trusted Best Regina mortgage broker, whose number one motivation is always your BEST interest then you should definitely consider Skott Enns! 

Skott is committed to providing the best service for his clients, and he has put together a team to make the mortgage process as efficient and easy as possible. He is authentic in his desire to help people, and as such, he works hard to ensure he has the best mortgage type and rates for each situation and every unique circumstance. 

So a bit about me! Growing up, I was never one of the jocks. Oh I played, soccer, hockey, and ball just like all the kids, but I was never really that good. Usually one of the last picked on the team… clearly it wasn’t my destiny to be a professional athlete.Instead, I loved puzzles, seriously, I was a pretty big nerd… my head was always buried in a crossword, brain teaser, mind bender, word search, or sudoku. As a Regina mortgage professional, nothing has really changed. I see every new clients’ mortgage as a puzzle that needs to be solved. Let me assure you, I do not rest until the solving is done! Specifically, some of the puzzles I enjoy working on now are clients who are new immigrants to Canada seeking their first mortgage, self-employed, recently separated, or buying their first home and… First Time Home Buyers are a personal favourite – I like first timers even more than Sudokus!  As each client is different, handling financing for investment properties, purchase plus improvementsmortgage refinancing and mortgage renewals provides a unique challenge.
On a personal note, I am a proud husband and father. My wife Shawna and I have twin boys and a daughter, and we are a VERY active family. We travel, play outside, get dirty in the mud, and love to see and experience new things! Life is pretty good!- Skott Enns.

When speaking to Skotts clients, including other Trusted Regina partners, as part of our unique Trusted verification process it is easy to see why so many of them voted for him to be Regina's best mortgage broker year after year.


" I send people to Skott all the time knowing they'll have a great experience and that he'll look after them. Skott is truly knowledgeable, good at what he does and treats people the way they should be treated." - Chris Worby, Owner of Worby Wealth Management - Trusted Regina Financial Advisor
" Skott is a kind, conscientious, and ethical professional. He goes the extra mile. We had a very complex mortgage file and he worked with us to get the best possible arrangement under very tight timelines. I highly recommend him." - Valerie Sluth, Regina .

SO, whatever your situation and needs are he will bring you options that have been evaluated and suggest only the ones that best suit your needs.

Trusted Regina Insurance Pros at Campbell & Haliburton Share a Tip on Winterizing Your RV

Trusted Regina Insurance experts at Campbell and Haliburton Insurance Inc have been in the community for over 50 years. They know it is customer service and knowledge that counts when you are in need of an insurance company in Regina. Campbell & Haliburton Insurance are dedicated insurance brokers in Regina, and they can assist you with finding the plan that works best for you. In their latest Trusted Regina Insurance Tip, they share a tip about how to winterize your RV.  

Camping season is over for another year. Before you put your trailer or motorhome in storage, make sure you take the time to protect it for the winter. While it seems like a lot of work, the extra effort you put in now will protect your vehicle from deterioration. With a little bit of elbow grease, your RV will last for many camping seasons to come. In our latest Campbell & Halliburton Regina auto insurance tip, we share SGI’s RV Winterizing Tips.

10-step RV Winterizing Guide

Step 1: Drain the water from your pipes
Step 2: Check your seals
Leaky roofs can cause major problems to the inside of your RV. The best way to avoid problems is to inspect your seals and ensure that there are no leaks. This includes examining your roof, slide-outs and windows to look for any holes or leaks
Step 3: Remove your RV batteries
If you plan on putting your RV in storage, take out your batteries and put them in a cool, dry place or on a charger.
Step 4: Protect your RV’s exterior
Step 5: Protect your awning
Step 6: Unhook your propane tanks
Step 7: Lubricate all locks and hinges
Step 8: Clean the interior
Step 9: Tarp, cover and moisture prevention
Step 10: Contact your broker at Campbell & Halliburton

Then, pump RV antifreeze into all of your tanks, lines and drains. Due to Saskatchewan’s subzero temperatures, it’s important to use RV antifreeze. Make sure it’s rated to -50 degrees C.

Clean the outside of your RV and inspect it for any cracks. Use an RV sealant to fix the crack(s) and let it dry completely. Then, apply wax to protect your vehicle.


Stop mould from growing on your awning by cleaning it thoroughly and allowing it to dry completely.

Store them in a well-ventilated area in order to prevent rust or damage.

Letting your RV sit untouched for months can cause the locks and hinges to get sticky or stop working completely. Save yourself a hassle the next camping season and lubricate all of your locks and hinges right now.

A clean and sanitized interior can make a world of difference when it comes to avoiding unwanted smells and rodents from entering your RV.

Most tarps are made of non-breathable materials, and this can cause moisture to get trapped underneath – leading to rust. We recommend choosing a breathable fabric cover to prevent water and condensation.

You’re almost done! Now’s the time to let your insurance broker know that you’re putting your trailer in storage. Your SGI CANADA Auto Pak may cover damage caused to your RV while in storage – as long as you meet the conditions of your policy. We can help you work through the conditions.
