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.
Often people starting out in certain creative fields can find the lower pay difficult to deal with. This is where becoming a guardian can help massively. Also keyworkers 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 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.
This is the beauty of being a VPS guardian, you can often live in some absolutely amazing properties!
Houses, flats, libraries, care homes, pubs and even Castles. Yes believe it or not we currently have a Castle! Rent is Typically only £250 - £600 per month, depending on location.
Another great thing about being a VPS Guardian is the fact that bills are paid for in our weekly fee and that also includes council tax un-less the it’s a residential flat. Some properties will come furnished and some unfurnished, but all living essentials are available, such as bathroom utilities and cooking facilities.
One of the best aspects of becoming a guardian is the fact that it’s far more affordable than renting, especially in some of the bigger cities within the UK. You can often find yourself living some beautiful (and very expensive!) parts of town, where most people can only dream of living, and often from only £60 per week.
Now, the definition of a tenant basically indicates that it is a person who rents property or land from the owner or landlord. The definition of a property guardian indicates that it is a person who protects a property or building. As you can see, there is quite a difference between the two definitions where the tenant is all about using a property as housing whereas the property guardian's purpose is to protect and defend the property from others.
As a tenant, you will be paying a monthly rent for a property that is typically a house, apartment or studio and this rent will be within the market rent for that type of property within the geographical area. You will have exclusive rights to the property while you're renting and you will be protected under specific laws that govern tenants.
A property guardian is a person who also pays a monthly fee for occupation of specific premises, however, this fee is usually quite low in comparison to monthly rent paid by tenants. However, the properties that are typically occupied by guardians are not typical houses or apartments, but buildings that are not usually used as family homes. They can be properties such as warehouses, old police buildings, churches, offices, museums etc.
One major difference between tenants and property guardians is that tenants can bring their family and kids to live in the house or apartment with them. However, guardians cannot bring their families and especially kids to live in the properties and most agencies only allow singles or professional couples to live there. This is because kids are not sufficiently protected under the laws that govern and they require a great deal more security than what is usually provided.
