Efficient and effective Property Guardian protection – fully secure your empty property at zero cost.
The Property Guardian protection concept is simple – We secure empty properties and regeneration projects on behalf of property owners and convert them into unique, temporary living spaces. We then make these spaces available for people to live in, on a flexible and affordable basis, in exchange for securing and protecting the property.
Security is one of the biggest challenges facing owners of empty property. Whether property is commercial or residential, there’s no doubt that unused buildings or those awaiting refurbishment are vulnerable to anti-social behaviour, squatters and dilapidation. Boarding up property can be unfavourable and can have a negative effect on the local community and the surrounding area. Additionally, there’s the issue that unused buildings often deteriorate in condition if left vacant for a long period of time. Traditional property security can be expensive, DEX Guardians offer a cost effective and flexible solution.

We can manage all types of residential and commercial property including flats, schools, hospitals, offices, churches, care homes and much more. The DEX Property Management protection method can be applied to all types of buildings, as long as the property meets the following basic criteria:
• Basic facilities are active
• Electricity and water are active
