This page tells you everything you need to know about being a Property Guardian with Global Guardians.

What is Property Guardianship?

Property Guardianship is a valuable and forward-thinking method by which empty properties are sustainably protected and managed, through the placement of a temporary, occupational licensee (Property Guardian) in order to prevent trespass and squatting as well as property desecration and devaluation.

Property Guardianship has a range of benefits for all end and sub-users. For property owners, it means stress-free management of their properties, and peace of mind that their assets are secured in line with British Standards for vacant property protection.

How it works

As Property Guardianship is focused on the security and protection of vacant property, it is essential that our Guardian selection and management processes adhere to our Quality Management System (QMS), which is externally audited.

If you would like to take advantage of the social and financial benefits that being a Global Guardian has to offer, and are thinking about applying for a property with us, here is what you need to know about the process, from start to finish.

“Being a guardian with Global Guardians for the past 3 years has been a great experience. I've lived in 2 amazing buildings and made really good friends. Myself and my partner have now bought a house (partially made possible by saving money through being guardians!) and are leaving Property Guardianship life behind with heavy hearts. We're really going to miss this chapter in our lives.” - Victoria Dyas

Rights & Responsibilities

Property Guardians are responsible for the security of a building. Property Guardians are not tenants; they sign a Licence Agreement, not a Tenancy Agreement.

All of our Guardians are required to thoroughly read through their Licence Agreement to ensure they understand and accept the terms before they sign it.
