Property Guardians

We are passionate about providing quality and affordable housing for London’s young professionals, creatives and key workers.

Over the years we have housed a wonderful group of ambitious, socially responsible and community minded guardians and we are very proud that through living with us, we have been able to help them unlock their aspirations and go on to do great things!

Social Impact

Social impact is a vital part of LOWE’s business practice, and we aim to support the local community of each property we manage through direct involvement in neighbourhood initiatives and support for key workers, artists and young professionals. Through our services, we are able to address a major issue in real estate today: affordability.

Client Case Studies

Our Clients include some of the UK’s leading developers, property funds, local authorities, housing associations, charities and NHS Trusts. No two buildings are the same and we treat each one on a completely individual basis, ensuring our process is seamless from the day we are handed the keys, to the day the property is returned to its owner.

Offices, Clerkenwell

We have found LOWE incredibly responsive and professional when dealing with our vacant properties. From the moment a building becomes vacant, they are able to move very fast, ensuring all compliance in place and occupying the properties with socially responsible guardians. We are given regular up to date reports and they maintain our properties to a very high standard.

We have found working with LOWE a really positive experience for managing our vacant properties. They have a rigorous vetting process for their guardians, ensuring only the most socially responsible occupy our properties. In return, we are delighted that our vacant buildings can be used to provide young professionals and key workers, with safe, secure and affordable accommodation.

We have been working closely with LOWE since 2017. Their buildings are well-managed, and they care about their guardians, which is reflected in the sense of community that they create in their properties. When a guardian initiative works like this, it is a mutually beneficial solution for all involved, offering the building owners considerable savings as well as security.

Pocket Living

Not only has LOWE saved us from significant security costs, but the social value of having responsible property guardians living in the estate has also been enormous. The flexible nature of their legal agreements fits perfectly with our ongoing plans for regenerating South Acton Estate with quality, affordable homes. We are especially proud to be housing key workers from the surrounding areas.

We have been working with LOWE for the past 2 years and we have found their property guardian service an excellent fit for our vacant buildings. Not only is this ensuring that the properties are professionally managed and saving us on traditional security costs, but we are really pleased that the properties are being used to house key workers working in the local area through their LOWEkey programme.
