Students across the UK benefit from a wide range of discounts to make their time studying more affordable, including cheaper rent and a lack of council tax. But once you've graduated and moved into working in your chosen field, things become more expensive and it can be harder to find affordable rental accommodation.
Becoming a property guardian in London as young professional
For recent graduates and young professionals, renting in London is inaccessibly expensive. Then, moving further away from the city for cheaper rent results in a long commute and far fewer social opportunities. However, property guardianship is a concept that offers young professionals and key workers accommodation in prime city-centre locations.
Property Guardianship has become increasingly popular in recent years, as a way for young professionals and key workers to secure affordable accommodation in London and Manchester. Property owners who are looking for a way to protect their vacant properties choose property Guardians as a cost-effective and modern solution to their problems.
Protecting and monitoring an empty property is difficult, and the impact of Covid-19 has made this even harder. With property owners having limited access to their empty buildings, it puts the building at higher risk. Empty buildings are targets for squatters, vandals and thieves, breaking in to occupy and deface the property and steal any valuable equipment left behind.
Is it worth becoming a property guardian in London?
London is one of the most popular cities in the UK for young professionals, but it also comes with a high cost of living. London has one of the highest average rent costs in the country which can be very daunting and off-putting for those wanting to make it in the capital.
If you’re new to the concept of property guardians, the thought of living in an empty commercial property might sound strange, scary or even dangerous. But Live-in Guardians are committed to finding properties for our guardians that are not only 100% safe, but comfortable and completely habitable.
As the country emerges from the Covid-19 crisis, property owners are now in need of live-in property guardians more than ever. With many pubs, offices and other businesses unfortunately having to close their doors due to the virus, this means there are many city properties left vacant and at risk of squatters or vandals.
In our blog we’ve talked a lot about our market-leading property guardian scheme, and how it allows thousands of professionals to beat the trend of unaffordable housing in some of the most vibrant and desirable places in London, and other cities across the UK.
Live-in Guardians helps professionals across London and other major cities move on in their careers by providing great opportunities for guardian property management. Our guardians are diligent, professional people holding full-time jobs – but would otherwise be held back by increasingly unaffordable housing costs.
‘Millennials’, it’s a controversial term – but, in literal terms, refers to people born broadly between 1981 through 19961. It’s remarkable how polarised the perceptions of other generations have towards Millennials.
