We take on empty properties, often in great locations and convert them into unique, habitable living spaces.
These buildings can be anything that is suitable to be used or converted into appropriate accommodation. Our properties range from self-contained flats and houses, through to former schools, stately homes and even police stations.
By living in these buildings, guardians provide live-in security to the property owner, in return for affordable, flexible accommodation.
The buildings that property guardians protect are incredibly varied. Our traditional shared properties offer communal living, in buildings ranging from care homes, offices, pubs and schools. But we understand shared living isn’t for everyone. That’s why we also offer a wide range of self-contained houses, flats and studios.
Property guardians are entitled to the same legal protection as tenants in regards to health and safety, fire and HMO legislation.
They are also protected by the Protection from Eviction Act. The two key legal differences between Property Guardians and tenants are: notice period (property guardians have a 28 day notice period) and non-exclusive possession of the property (DEX Property Management, property owners or their representatives can access the property at any time).
