Our Approach

We provide property owners with a professional, reliable and cost-effective solution to managing the problems caused by leaving buildings vacant.

Instead of leaving property empty and at risk of antisocial behaviour and dilapidation our trusted guardians protect and secure the premises in return for a safe and affordable housing solution.

How Guardianship Works

DEX’s extensively vetted property guardians secure property on a 24/7 basis at zero cost to the property owner. They ensure the building it is well cared for and maintained, whilst protecting against risks such as vandalism, squatters and asset stripping.

Allowing property guardians to live on your premises maximising protection whilst delivering substantial savings against traditional security solutions, such a site patrols, security guards and alarm systems and in some cases, guardians can even provide a revenue opportunity to property owners.

DEX’s in-house team are able to turn most properties into habitable, safe and affordable spaces for Property Guardian to live and thrive in. Property Guardianship brings property back into use whilst giving young professionals, key-workers and creatives a chance to live more affordably.

The Benefits

Property Guardians offer a flexible solution that delivers substantial savings compared to traditional security solutions. Guardians remove the hassle of managing empty property whilst caring and maintain buildings, positively impacting on the local community, and in some cases, even creating a revenue stream for owners.
