How does a property guardian Scheme Work?

Vacant property guardians provide 24/7 security to your empty property, while taking good care of the building they are living in, mitigating the potential risk of squatters, vandalism or theft.

Traditional security solutions such as security guards, site patrols or alarm response can cost thousands a month. Allowing vacant property guardians to live in your building not only works as a cost-effective solution to securing the empty property, but also drastically reduces the insurance premiums and business rates that you may be faced with.
