than 205,000 have been unoccupied for six months or more.

Property Guardian Scheme

At Property Guardians we are passionate about bringing empty properties back into use. The benefits of using our property guardians are far reaching; property owners receive reliable, flexible and cost-effective security for their voids. Communities also avoid the blight that empty homes cause, and key-workers get access to affordable housing.

We work alongside housing associations and private landlords including:

“Using this property guardian scheme has transformed the way we manage
our voids and helped us make big savings across the business.”

How it works

Property owner enters into an agreement with Property Guardians authorising us to provide services to secure empty property

Property Guardians grants non-exclusive licences to live-in guardians, allowing them to occupy and secure the empty property with a 28 day break clause.

Property Guardians manage the vacant property throughout the term of the agreement, including undertaking inspections and providing status reports to the owner.

On termination of the agreement between Property Guardians and the owner, our licence with the live-in guardians terminates and the property is returned within 28 days.
