Vacant School Management

Our vacant property services extend to schools, with effective solutions such as property guardians transforming empty campuses into secure, monitored sites, preventing damage and unauthorised entry in a cost-neutral manner. We take pride in our successful management of various former schools across London, with the unique nature of school buildings enabling us to provide spacious, affordable accommodation for young key workers in sought-after locations.

Simultaneously, we’ve been able to completely offset security costs for our clients and offer access to additional sports facilities for local community groups and after-school clubs. What’s more, live-in guardians do not impact planning considerations and can be liable for a reduction in business rates costs.

In addition to property guardians, we offer a range of tailored solutions for managing your vacant space, which include live-in caretakers and traditional security guards, all at competitive rates to suit your specific needs.

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.
