How to keep a vacant property secure in London

August 18, 2021

Vacant properties are not only unsightly but can also pose a significant security risk if left unattended. The problems associated with maintaining these unoccupied properties can quickly escalate, ranging from minor defects to criminal activity such as squatting and vandalism. Live-in Guardians addresses these challenges and, with decades of experience in vacant commercial property security, offers a solid solution to protect and maintain these unoccupied properties.

At Live-in Guardians, we offer a unique approach to vacant commercial property security. Through our Property Guardianship scheme, we place carefully vetted individuals, known as Property Guardians, to live in your empty property around the clock. Guardians keep the building occupied, helping property owners protect their assets until they decide on future use or development.

By converting vacant commercial spaces into habitable environments for our Guardians, we ensure that these properties are not only secure but also make a positive contribution to the community by providing affordable accommodation for young professionals and key workers in London.

Property Guardians are in place for the primary purpose of securing and safeguarding the property. Guardians, however, are not expected to deal with potential threats or put themselves in confrontational situations. If issues arise, or criminal activity is suspected, Guardians can report the problem to our dedicated team straight away. We will then deal with the problem quickly and professionally.

We have a strict selection process for our Guardians to ensure that they are trustworthy and responsible individuals who are committed to caring for the property they occupy. We also provide ongoing training and support to our Guardians to ensure that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively manage the property and respond to any issues that may arise.

Our Property Guardianship scheme is a mutually beneficial arrangement for both property guardians and owners. For Guardians, property guardianship provides access to affordable housing opportunities. For property owners, Guardianship offers a cost-effective solution to protecting their vacant buildings. Keeping a property occupied deters would-be intruders and prevents the building from falling into disrepair.

If you are looking for a reliable and innovative solution for vacant commercial property security, Live-in Guardians is here for you. We offer a free security survey of your property within 24 hours of your enquiry, and for urgent security needs, our Live-in Caretaker service can provide immediate protection. Our commitment to providing effective vacant commercial property security solutions makes us a trusted partner for property owners across London.
