Global Guardians ensures that all of our guardians understand the terms and conditions of the legal contract that they sign with us. Unlike a tenancy agreement our guardian license is a non-exclusive temporary contract for the living space of the property.
This means that when our contract with a property owner is terminated for a specific property our license agreement with our guardian is automatically terminated.
This does not mean that we will move our guardians out immediately
However, it does mean that at this point we will serve notification of termination of the guardian’s license agreement with us. This gives our guardians four weeks’ notice to vacate the premises, under the Protection of Eviction act 1977. Due to the nature of our business we try to re-locate as many of our guardians as possible in new Global Guardians properties but we do not guarantee 100% retention.
In order to avoid any misunderstandings we actively request that all potential guardians read the terms and conditions of the license agreement before signing. We also encourage current guardian to refresh their knowledge of the license agreement that they have signed to fully appreciate their legal obligations.
During our induction process our professional staff members will talk new guardians through the key points of the license agreement to ensure that this is the right decision for them.
