Live-in Guardians



If you want accommodation in South West London whilst paying a fraction of the expense of an average leasing, becoming a property guardian could work for you. At Live-in Guardians we protect a variety of properties and commercial buildings in Merton that require Guardians to live in and protect the building. Merton has plenty of underground and national rail transport links and is the host of the famous Wimbledon tennis tournament. You might believe living in Merton is out of your budget, however becoming a property Guardian could help you to save hundreds in living expenditures.

Being a residential property Guardian means to secure and preserve empty properties that may otherwise be vacant and unprotected. Owners of vacant properties come to Live-in Guardians, and we refit the inside of the property to make it into a modern and fully compliant residential space with all necessary amenities. Our Guardians can then move in and keep the building secure and maintained as you would in any type of property-- all in exchange for a reduced license fee as opposed to paying expensive rent. If you're in full-time work and looking for affordable city living, you could be an optimal fit for our community of Guardians in Merton.

We're looking for reliable, trustworthy Merton Guardians. If you think you match this summary and you wish to live in shared lodging with like-minded individuals and in interesting properties (we protect buildings such as gyms, churches, offices, and a lot more!), submit our Guardian application today. If we have any suitable available properties seeking property guardians in Merton or nearby, we'll get in touch! Or have a look at some of our other London locations.
