What is a property guardian?

A property guardian is someone who provides live-in security for vacant buildings in exchange for affordable accommodation, primarily in central locations. A property guardian might be someone saving for a house deposit, a start-up founder investing in their business, or someone excited to be a part of a community of like minded people in the heart of the city.

Who can become a property guardian?

To become a LOWE Guardian you must be over the age of 21 and in full time employment. We want to make this affordable accommodation available to people who give back, and our LOWEkey scheme ensures key workers get priority in our buildings so we can support those workers who are the lifeblood of our communities.

What are typical guardianship housing responsibilities?

A guardian has two primary duties: to keep the building safe from squatters and ensure the property doesn’t slip into dereliction. To avoid squatters, it is vital that at least one guardian is present within a building at any given time. We do the heavy lifting on all maintenance and building upkeep, but our guardians keep us in the loop by reporting any issues with the property and testing fire alarms and emergency lighting.
