Sold UK

As a private property company, we have found it very time consuming and expensive securing vacant properties we buy and sell.

During our worst-case scenario, we had a property squatted while trying to complete on the sales process.

From our initial discussions and their subsequent appointment, Live-in Caretakers moved swiftly and in a professional manner to secure our property. In addition to ensuring we were able to complete our intended sale I also had piece of mind knowing that my property was in safe hands.

We would have no hesitation using or recommending Live-in Caretakers service to anyone that might be interested.
