Live-in Guardians: Vacant Property Specialists

20 September 2023

At Live-in Guardians, we are not just a company; we are a dedicated team of professionals committed to addressing one of the most pressing challenges in property management today - vacant properties. Our mission is clear: to provide property owners with a cost-effective and responsible solution for safeguarding their vacant properties while also offering housing opportunities to individuals seeking affordable accommodation.

Vacant properties are a growing concern worldwide. Whether it's residential or commercial spaces, leaving properties empty can lead to a host of issues, including deterioration and vandalism. Property owners face the daunting task of securing these properties while also dealing with the associated costs.

Live-in Guardians was established to provide a reliable and commercial solution to the problems created by empty properties. Through Property Guardianship, we provide a modern solution to vacant property security, that can help property owners to protect their investments in a cost-effective way.

Property Guardianship is an arrangement where individuals, known as Property Guardians, live in vacant or temporarily unused properties to deter vandalism, squatting, and maintain the building. In exchange for reduced rent, Guardians keep the building occupied around the clock, helping property owners protect their assets until they decide on future use or development.

Property Guardians are in place for the primary purpose of securing and safeguarding the property. Guardians, however, are not expected to deal with potential threats or put themselves in confrontational situations. If issues arise, or criminal activity is suspected, Guardians can report the problem to our dedicated team straight away. We will then deal with the problem quickly and professionally.

We have a strict selection process for our Guardians to ensure that they are trustworthy and responsible individuals who are committed to caring for the property they occupy. We also provide ongoing training and support to our Guardians to ensure that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively manage the property and respond to any issues that may arise.

The Live-in Guardians Property Guardianship scheme provides an innovative way of protecting both residential and commercial properties and offers a mutually beneficial arrangement for both owners and Guardians.

For Guardians, property guardianship provides access to affordable housing opportunities. For property owners, Guardianship offers a cost-effective solution to protecting their vacant building. Keeping a property occupied deters would-be intruders and prevents the building from falling into disrepair. 

Property Guardianship also offers immediate protection. When owners enquire with Live-in Guardians, we provide a free survey of their property within 24 hours. If the application is successful, we can have Guardians secure the property within days. This means that the building is quickly protected, preventing any damage or loss of property.

Live-in Guardians is dedicated to addressing the challenges posed by vacant properties. Our Property Guardianship offers an innovative solution, offering protection to both residential and commercial properties.
