There are numerous reasons why a person becomes a property guardian but these are the most common:
Being a property guardian means you can save a lot of money whilst protecting a living space.
Our property guardians pay up to 60% less licence fee as a property guardian sharing a living space rather than paying to rent a property.
Being a property guardian means you could protect a very large space.
The majority of the properties we manage have very large living spaces. It is very common for a property guardian to protect living spaces that are up to ten times larger than if they were to rent a room on the rental market.
You are part of a project that is aimed at protecting empty buildings, which also includes heritage buildings.
Many people value the fact that they are able to help the local area by protecting a former blight on the landscape that attracted anti social behaviour and negative connotations for the local neighbour. Therefore it is almost a civic duty to protect an empty building so the local area benefits.
You get to meet a lot of people from many different walks of life who you might never have met before.
Because all property guardians are working professionals many people enjoy the social aspect of meeting new people but they also make use of the different skill sets. For example, we have a removals van operative as a property guardian who has helped hundreds of property guardians move from property to property. We have had aspiring musicians who are property guardians with us able to fill venues with their new friends who are property guardians.
You can look after buildings that are interesting in areas that they would not normally be able to live.
Certain parts of cities are now off limits to all but the very rich. However, property guardians can protect living space in these areas. Due to the vast diversity of the vacant properties we manage a property guardian could protect a very unusual building such as a fire station, stately home, office building, library or school.
These are just a few reasons to become a property guardian with Global Guardians.
