Tom Pontin

Fantastic experience as a landlord using Live-in Guardians. Initially they protected the property whilst it was vacant, then did an incredible job of bringing it up to standard, with tenant safety paramount. Work finished today and the property is fully let. They’ve kept me informed throughout. Can highly recommend their services.

DirectorProject MET

Commercial Client

We were delighted with the service we received from Live In Guardians. During the enforced pub closures of COVID, the substantial listed property which we managed was broken into and vandalised when it was vacant. In addition, the upper floors were being refurbished which made them unsuitable for occupation. We did not want to fully board up the property but had genuine concerns over the security of the premises, which were shared by the local planning department. Live in Guardians found an experienced Guardian for us. They successfully prevented further attempted break-ins and kept the property secure until it was sold. The sale of the property took far longer than anticipated, but LIG were able to support us right through until the day of the sale. LIG proved to be fundamental in maintaining the physical security of the property, which could not have been achieved as effectively with boarding-up and remote monitoring.
