Affordable accommodation for graduates
15 May 2022
Students across the UK benefit from a wide range of discounts to make their time studying more affordable, including cheaper rent and a lack of council tax. But once you've graduated and moved into working in your chosen field, things become more expensive and it can be harder to find affordable rental accommodation. Live-in Guardians aims to help young professionals looking for a shared living solution that won't drain their bank account, by converting commercial properties into residential living spaces for Guardians to live in and protect.
Vacant Property Guardians are dedicated custodians of valuable properties. By living in vacant commercial properties that are currently out of use, they offer important protection by occupation and maintenance services. Empty buildings such as pubs, offices and warehouses can quickly become invaded by squatters or defaced by vandals if they are left vacant and unprotected for too long. By converting the interior of the property into a fully compliant residential living space, Live-in Guardians helps to prevent these attacks from happening. With vetted Guardians safely and legally living in the property, criminals are deterred and buildings are kept safe and in good condition.
We enjoy working with conscientious and team-oriented young professionals. If you have recently graduated and are now working as a professional, but are struggling to find a rental that doesn't break the bank, becoming a Guardian could be the ideal solution for you. Our application process is straightforward; we will ask for contact information, photo ID and bank statements, and then all you need to do is tell us why you think you'd make an ideal Guardian and let us know what areas you're interested in. We have Guardian properties available across Manchester and London, including desirable central London travel zones. If your application is successful, we will send you a weekly mailing list with invitations to view our available properties, and once you've put a deposit down you and our other selected Guardians can move in almost straight away. Our Guardian scheme gives you the opportunity to live with other young professionals, becoming part of our creative and friendly Guardian community.
We're looking for graduates who are now in full-time employment and understand what it means to be a good Guardian. Guardians are expected to keep their living space clean and tidy and report any maintenance issues to our team so that the property always stays in good working order. Property Guardianship is a community-based lifestyle and Guardians should enjoy living and collaborating with other like-minded individuals and should be comfortable with a flexible lifestyle. If property owners require the use of their building again, we will return it to them within thirty days, but we will always prioritise finding suitable alternative accommodation for the Guardians.
Becoming a Guardian is exciting, rewarding and affordable. By providing important property protection services for commercial property owners, Guardians benefit by paying a monthly license fee instead of a monthly rent, which is often dramatically lower than the cost of traditional rental properties in the same area. If you're a recent graduate who wants to live in affordable shared accommodation and you're a reliable and hard-working individual, fill in our Guardian application and see what unique and desirable properties we can offer you.
