Live-in Guardians



If you want accommodation in south London whilst paying a fraction of the price of an ordinary leasing, coming to be a residential property guardian might benefit you. At Live-in Guardians we secure a range of properties and buildings in Croydon that need Guardians to live in and protect the building. Croydon is an ideal location if you’re interested in art and culture, full of theatres galleries and museums. You may think living in Croydon is out of your budget, however becoming a property Guardian might aid you in saving hundreds in living expenditures.

Being a property Guardian means to protect and preserve empty properties that are currently sitting unused and vacant. Owners of vacant properties enter a contract with Live-in Guardians and we refit the inside of the property to make it into a modern and completely compliant living space with all the necessary facilities. Our Guardians can then move in and keep the building safe and looked after as you would in any kind of property-- all in exchange for a reduced license fee instead of paying an expensive lease. If you're in full-time work and seeking low-cost city living, you could be an optimal candidate for our community of Guardians in Croydon.

We're seeking reliable, trustworthy Croydon Guardians. If you think you match this summary and want to stay in shared accommodation with similar people and in a unique property (we protect buildings such as clubs, schools, churches and much more!), fill out our Guardian application form today. If we have any appropriate properties in need of property guardians in Croydon or nearby, we'll contact you! Alternatively, have a look at some of our other London locations.
