Live-in Guardians



If you want accommodation in the heart of London whilst paying a fraction of the cost of a normal leasing, becoming a residential property guardian could work for you. At Live-in Guardians we protect a range of business properties and buildings in Hackney that need Guardians to stay in and secure the building. Hackney is a well-connected area and is home to the popular metropolitan area of Shoreditch. You might believe living in Hackney is out of your budget but becoming a residential property Guardian can help you to save hundreds in living expenses.

Being a property Guardian means to protect as well as maintain vacant properties that might otherwise be unused and empty. Owners of vacant properties come to Live-in Guardians, and we transform the interior of the property to make it into a contemporary and fully functional home with all amenities. Our Guardians can then move in and keep the building monitored and preserved as you would in any residential rental-- all in exchange for a low license fee rather than expensive rent and bills. If you're in full time employment and seeking low-cost city living, you could be suitable for our creative community of Guardians in Hackney.

We're trying to find reliable, dependable Hackney Guardians. If you think you match this summary and want to live in shared lodging with like-minded people and in interesting properties (we protect buildings such as pubs, schools, churches, offices and much more!), submit our Guardian application form today. If we have any appropriate properties looking for property guardians in Hackney or nearby, we'll get in touch! Or look at some of our other London areas.
