What is Property Guardianship?

VPS Guardians help prevent the negative consequences of vacant properties, and in return you are offered a unique and affordable place to live or to work. Property Guardianship works for professionals or businesses throughout the UK, and it’s a great cost effective alternative to the high costs of the current rental market.

These properties and spaces are available on a short term basis, ranging from one month and onwards. They are also in a varied range of building types. By putting these vacant buildings to use as affordable living spaces, we ensure these derelict areas remain active and livable.

What are the advantages of becoming a guardian?

There are huge benefits to becoming a guardian, some of the properties available can often be truly amazing! Other great aspects are the fact that some properties can be in some of the best locations in town, and that the overall costs are always substantially less than traditional renting.It can also be a great way to save real money towards a mortgage or home deposit, traveling and many others. In this day and age it’s extremely hard to save real money as living costs and rent within the UK have risen dramatically.

  • Properties and work spaces available throughout the UK, from only £60 a week including bills
  • Live in parts of the UK that would often be out of budget
  • Live in a community with other likeminded people, all approved by VPS Guardians
  • You’ll often live in very interesting properties
  • We have short terms contracts to suite most people requirements, range from one month and onwards
  • Flexible living just 28 days notice to leave
  • We will commit an emergency response within 48 hours, If any problem arises
  • Once a contract ends, will be do everything within our power to rehouse our guardians
  • Often our Property guardians can look after interesting buildings, such as pubs, schools, care homes, police stations, office buildings and more.

Often people starting out in certain creative fields can find the lower pay difficult to deal with. This is where becoming a live in guardian can help massively. Also key workers can benefit hugely from the overall reduced rental costs, especially in the more high end expensive parts of the country.

One thing important to remember is all of our properties and spaces are available immediately and you can often move straight in. Another great aspect is that you often have most of the properties facilities for yourself!

We find many of our guardians are often saving up for a mortgage, new car, traveling etc and this is the main driving force to become a house guardian. So much money is wasted on rent within the UK that most people can’t save any money at all, or end up with no money to enjoy life.
