Our Guardians

Elliott, Teacher

I was initially drawn to guardianship both as a way to meet like-minded people in a new city, and for an economic break while teaching. I was excited by my first property with LOWE as an opportunity to meet new people and to live in the heart of London in a unique space. Living in a bank in Marble Arch ticked all of these boxes and I lived there happily for over two years. I have lived with LOWE since 2018, and in 2020 I moved to a new part of London to find a property that was self-contained and suited the next stage of my London life. LOWE helped me make the transition to one of their flats in Loughborough Junction, which I have lived in ever since.

Felipe, Cancer Research Specialist

I moved in with LOWE in summer 2021 as they were individually recommended to me by two good friends already living with LOWE.

Being a guardian with LOWE gives me the opportunity to live in central London, whereby my commute to the lab is only a 10-minute walk, which is incredibly useful as often I have to come to the lab on weekends. Being able to live so close to where I work means I can spend less time (and money!) commuting and doing more of the things I actually like to do!

Katherine, Theatre Specialist & Medical Volunteer

I have been a property guardian since 2018, but I moved in with LOWE in November 2021. I always wanted to live with LOWE because of their reputation in how they care more about the guardians living in their properties than other guardian companies.

I absolutely love the guardianship lifestyle; the incredibly affordable prices mean I can live in locations I wouldn’t normally be able to afford, and I can live in the most interesting and unique buildings!

Nico, Business Development Manager

I have lived with LOWE for six years; first living in a property in Battersea Park, and I now live at Loughborough Junction, in a studio flat. Living with LOWE has helped me find affordable accommodation in central London, which, as a foreigner working in London, you don’t necessarily want to live on the periphery of a big city. It means I can save disposable income for other purposes, as well as bettering my everyday life when it comes to leisure.

There is a fantastic community dimension, which gives you the option to socialise with a diverse range of people within your property. My neighbours are visual artists, craftsmen, actors, and various other professionals as well – I love it!

Anyusha, Digital Experience & Content Manager

I have been with LOWE for 4 years. I chose to live with LOWE is because being close to the centre of town has always been my priority, and LOWE’s locations are second to none.

I grew up in NW6, and have spent the majority of my post-university life in London. I wanted an adventure that would broaden my social circle, show me parts of the city I didn’t know, and offer the chance to create a new community. Guardianship spoke to all of those interests. I’m now based in a majestic stucco-fronted mansion in South Kensington. Having spent my childhood weekends, eating cheese sandwiches and inspecting dinosaur bones at the Natural History Museum, it’s impossible to find a more iconic location. Living here as part of a growing, international community, beats any alternative flat sharing possibility.

Isaac, Marketing Manager

I’m originally from Australia, so I’d only heard about guardianship through people I’d met since moving to the UK. I actually spotted an ad for LOWE guardianship in the Evening Standard, so I did some research into the company and it looked like a really good programme to get involved with. I signed up and a week later I had a new place. I’d heard some guardian companies were pretty ordinary, but all LOWE employees are really vested into the business model, from the moment I signed up, to coming into the office and meeting everyone – they all really enjoy the work. Living inside a LOWE property has been an absolute dream. I was living in a dive before getting the LOWE property and it’s been nothing but great since. My favourite part is definitely the property we’ve been given, and I honestly can’t think of any complaints I’ve had since moving in.

"Best that I have dealt with"

This guardianship company is the best one that I have ever dealt with so far, from organisation to customer service. I'll definitely recommend LOWE to my friends!

"You guys are all great"

It was great being looked after by LOWE, instead of worrying about landlords or agencies! You guys are all great, thank you for looking after me :)

I loved living with LOWE - a decent place for a very reasonable price and excellent location. LOWE were always super responsive and helpful whenever there were issues and made the whole experience as a guardian an excellent one! Thank you!

"Beautiful buildings in great locations"

The best thing about living as a guardian with LOWE is the community, beautiful buildings in great locations and looking after the property. I would like to say thank you very much to LOWE for the opportunity to live in such an amazing place.

"Housemates were amazing"

I really enjoyed my time with LOWE. We had an excellent Head Guardian and all of my other housemates were amazing. Great building, excellent location and the people in it.
