Enquire about building security

More than just property security

31 January 2022

When it comes to property security, you want value for money as well as peace of mind. If you own a commercial property that is currently empty and unused, it may be an easy target for thieves, vandals, and squatters. You might think your only option is to hire a security guard, but paying for a professional guard to protect your property around the clock can come with a high price tag, with costs adding up over time.  However, significant savings are available when Guardians protect your building instead.


Property Guardians deter threats from approaching your property by occupying it as residents. We outfit the interior of your property with all the necessities for residential living, including kitchens and bathrooms, ready for our hand-picked Guardians to move in and start protecting your property. This service means you don't have to pay for an expensive 24-hour security guard, and the relationship benefits the Guardians too. In exchange for their services, Guardians pay a low license fee to live in the property which can save them hundreds in living costs when compared to your average rental in the same area. Once you enter into an agreement with us, all you pay is the setup cost and utilities, which is a fraction of what security guard would charge.


However, Guardians don't just provide a security service. By living in and protecting your property, Guardians help to keep the building "alive". When opting for a security guard, usually all utilities such as gas and electricity are shut off. If the property is vacant for a lengthy period of time, this can cause significant maintenance issues down the line, but with Guardians living in the property and keeping everything running, you can put your mind at ease knowing that everything is in working order and that any issues will be reported straight to the Live-in Guardians maintenance team. By keeping the property clean and tidy with daily maintenance, Guardians also negate the need for expensive janitorial services, saving you even more money overall. Having Guardians in your property can also help to take the headache out of access issues: if someone like an architect or maintenance person needs access to the property, Guardians can assist with providing access. This eliminates the security issue of having to hand out keys, or the hassle of property owners having to visit the property, so there's one less thing to worry about.


No property owner wants to see their asset empty or become the target of squatters. The stress and cost involved with removing squatters can be astronomical, but choosing live-in property protection means you can prevent these problems before they happen whilst saving thousands in the process.  Property Guardians are an affordable and innovative solution to keeping vacant commercial properties safe and well maintained, and we have over ten years of industry experience in property protection. If you're looking for a property security solution that not only keeps properties safe but in great working order, Live-in Guardians could provide you with the ideal solution.
