Live-in Guardians



If you're interested in living in east London whilst paying a fraction of the cost of an ordinary London leasing, becoming a property guardian could benefit you. At Live-in Guardians we secure a range of buildings and commercial properties in Redbridge that need Guardians to secure the building. Redbridge has plenty of green spaces, as well as theatres and museums and easy transport links to central London and Essex. You might assume living in Redbridge is outside of your budget yet coming to be a property Guardian with us can help you to save hundreds in living expenditures.

Being a property Guardian means to protect and preserve empty properties that might otherwise be sitting vacant and vulnerable. Owners of vacant commercial properties involve Live-in Guardians, and we refit the interior of the building to make it into a contemporary and fully compliant residential home with all the amenities. Our Guardians can then move in and keep the building monitored and preserved as you would in any type of property-- done in exchange for a reduced license fee as opposed to paying high rent costs. If you're in full time work and trying to find low-cost city living, you could be a perfect fit for our community of Guardians in Redbridge.

We're looking for reputable, reliable Redbridge Guardians. If you think you match these criteria and you’d like to live in shared accommodation with similar people and in an interesting property (we secure buildings such as schools, churches, pubs and much more!), fill out our Guardian application form today. If we have any appropriate properties seeking residential property guardians in Redbridge or nearby, we will contact you! Alternatively, check out some of our other London locations.
