What is a property guardian?

A property guardian is a carefully selected individual, usually a young professional, who temporarily lives in an empty building at a cheaper accommodation rate. They keep your property secure, under observation, occupied (to deter potential squatters, vandalists and thieves) and in good status. This provides you with cheaper security costs, and confidence that your vacant property is in good hands, leaving you with less worries about potential money troubles.

  • Property owners can save money on security costs.
  • In some cases, business rates no longer apply for the space.
  • The guardian enjoys much lower accommodation fees for living in the building.

Empty Property Problems

We understand that unoccupied buildings can create problems for property owners, including financial struggles and security breaches. We work hard to get to know the occupants of your property closely and make the best mutual living arrangements for each property owner with our solution programme. Often, we will return your property to you in a better condition than when we received it!

Properties that are vacant or soon-to-become vacant face a significant threat from vandalists, thieves and squatters (unlawful occupation of an unoccupied building). Our Property Guardian Security solutions make sure that your property is secure, and in the capable hands of our guardians - giving you less to worry about.

Metal theft is the most common problem unoccupied properties can face. A period of vacancy can be unpredictable and sudden due to changing circumstances, and thieves can be ready for the period of vacancy - some properties have even been vandalised on the same day the building was emptied. Security can be an expensive and stressful factor to consider during this time. Our friendly, reliable and trustworthy guardians are here to provide you with cost-effective, professional and more effective security measures.

3-steps to a more secure property

Our 3-step solution to a more secure property could save you thousands of pounds.

The owner of a property enters into an Agreement with Live-in Guardians Limited (LIG) authorising them to provide its services to secure the owner's vacant property.

To assist Live-in Guardians to provide its services, LIG's associate company, Live-in Guardians Management Limited (LIM) grants non-exclusive licences to guardians to occupy a particular property.

Upon termination of the agreement between LIG and the owner, the licence between LIM and the Guardian automatically terminates, which ensures our guardians do not acquire any tenancy rights.
