House of Lords Welcome Property Guardian Firms’ Launch of Industry Association.
DEX Property Management are delighted to be a founding member of the Property Guardian Providers Association, which launched this week.
Seven of the UK’s leading property guardian firms have come together to form the sector’s first trade association to lead on safety and standards, to represent and promote the industry, and to foster best practice. The Property Guardian Providers Association (PGPA) has been warmly welcomed by all parties in a debate on property guardians in the House of Lords on Monday, and government Minister Lord Bourne announced the government would be seeking to meet the association soon.
The PGPA, which is founded jointly by DEX Property Management, Ad Hoc Property Management, Guardians of London, Live-in Guardians, Lowe Guardians, VPS and Camelot, has been created to provide the industry with effective representation, to formulate policy, and to ensure that its members are at the forefront of meeting or exceeding legal and safety standards. These seven founding members provide over 80% of the guardian accommodation in the UK.
The association’s inaugural chairman and secretary is Mr. Graham Sievers who will hold the reigns of the trade body until the election of the first member chairman at the organisation’s first annual general meeting next year.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to ensure that this fast-growing sector is represented vocally and sets the best-in-class standards for the whole industry” said Graham Sievers, Chairman and Secretary or the PGPA.Visit the PGPA website for further information
