A Flexible Property Guardian is a temporary Property Guardian, who secures an empty property on a short-term or short-notice basis.



When we take on a new property, we often need to ensure it is secure within 24 hours. To do so, we place a Flexible Guardian or ‘Flex’ from a pool of current and experienced DEX Property Guardians. These trusted Property Guardians temporarily live in the property to ensure it is protected and secure while it is made ready for full Property Guardian occupation, or to provide short term or emergency protection.

Our pool of Flexible Guardians are made up of experienced, current Property Guardians who have been with DEX Property Management for a number of years and can be trusted to take on extra Property Guardian responsibilities.

Flexible Guardians are able to provide protection in the following circumstances;

  • While we prepare the property for full Property Guardian occupation
  • Emergency or short-notice security (Within 24 hours)
  • Short term protection, when the property is empty for a few days or weeks
  • Seasonal protection
  • Secure the property during the process of evicting squatters

Need to protect a vacant property on a short term or emergency basis? DEX’s Flexible Property Guardian service means we can guarantee to have your property fully secure within 24 hours. Call us on 0800 0855 994 or email propertyowners@dexpropertymanagement.co.uk for more information.
