Become a property guardian in London

More than 20,000 homes in London — and 25,378 in the commuter belt — are empty long term despite the growing housing shortage. Latest government data shows the hotspots are Barnet, Camden, Croydon, Southwark and Kensington & Chelsea, which each have more than 1,000 homes that have been empty for six months or more.
