Flats & Apartments

Managing Flats & Apartments

Flats are invaluable in the city, and we are highly experienced in managing your vacant apartments ensuring that the space doesn’t go to waste! From studios to three-bed flats, we understand the intricacies of effectively safeguarding these spaces, which are particularly vulnerable to vandalism and squatters. Our solutions include on-site security guards, live-in caretakers, and the most cost effective; property guardianship.

Our fantastic in-house maintenance team will renovate your vacant building if necessary, transforming it into a habitable and safe living space. Once the necessary renovations and fit-out work are completed, we swiftly move in local key workers and professionals on a flexible 28-day notice contract, who will protect the space in return for subsidised rental costs.

Not only does this completely mitigate security costs, but it also provides safe and affordable housing for local key workers, giving your vacant building a new lease of life!

What’s more, live-in guardians do not impact planning considerations and can be liable for a reduction in business rates costs. This way, you can continue with your existing plans, having peace of mind that your property is secure and contributing positively to the community.

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.

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.
