Security by occupation

An estimated 240,000 to 250,000 additional homes need to be built each year to meet growing demand in the UK. While there is clearly a need to supply more homes, to ignore the potential of the thousands of homes lying empty across the country would be a mistake. Many of these empty property become a targets for crime and anti-social behaviour, highlighting the need for an effective security by occupation solution.

Enabling key workers and young professionals to occupy and secure empty property as live in guardians can have a hugely positive effect on local communities. Not only does it tackle the problems of anti-social behaviour, but also saves property owners thousands of pounds in security and maintenance costs.

Bringing empty properties back to life

Most people see the benefit of bringing empty homes and buildings back into use, but progress depends in practice on governments, property owners, local authorities, community and housing organisations all being willing and able to take action.

At Property Guardians we are passionate about using live-in guardians to protect your vacant property – bringing empty properties back into use and helping to revitalise communities. Our scheme provides a ‘security by occupation’ solution to the growing housing crisis and creates opportunities for key workers and young professionals to get access to affordable housing which would otherwise be out of their reach.
