Live-in Guardians



If you're interested in living in the very heart of London whilst paying a fraction of the cost of an ordinary leasing, coming to be a residential property guardian with us could work for you. At Live-in Guardians we protect a variety of commercial properties and buildings in Westminster that want Guardians to live in the building and keep it secure. Westminster is home to some of London’s most famous locations such as the West End, Buckingham Palace, and the Houses of Parliament. You may believe living in Westminster is far outside of your budget, however coming to be a commercial property Guardian with us can help you to save hundreds in living costs.

Being a residential property Guardian means to protect and preserve vacant buildings that may otherwise be sitting unoccupied. Owners of uninhabited commercial properties come to Live-in Guardians, and we equip the interior of the property to make it into a contemporary and completely compliant residential space with all the necessary features. Our Guardians can then move in and keep the building safe and looked after as you would in any property-- done in exchange for a reduced license fee rather than paying sky-high London rent. If you're in full-time employment and you’re seeking affordable city living, you could be a suitable fit for our creative community of Guardians in Westminster.

We're looking for trustworthy, dependable Westminster Guardians. If you think you match these criteria and you want to live in shared lodging with similar individuals and in interesting locations (we secure buildings such as pubs, universities, churches, bars, and a lot more!), complete our Guardian application form today. If we have any appropriate properties looking for residential property guardians in Westminster or nearby, we'll contact you! Alternatively, look at some of our other top London locations.
