Living in a LOWE Guardians property works out perfectly for me as I get to live less than a 10 minute walk to Hyde Park or even a short walk to Oxford Street for such an affordable price – you would find it hard to find any room in London for the same price! This as well as having a living area which makes it easier to enjoy where you live and socialise with other house mates creating an enjoyable atmosphere to live in. Another benefit is that Lowe are very easy to communicate with and reply quickly to any queries you may have which saves you worrying about issues. Overall, I’d definitely recommend becoming a guardian with Lowe as it allows you live in central London without the high prices of rent and a quite a quirky place to live in (which is always a conversation starter!).
I have loved my first couple of months as a guardian. It has enabled me to live in a large, creative space close to work with great people I never would have otherwise met.
Being a property guardian has been perfect for me as a small business owner, saving money on rent really helps to give me peace of mind as I start up. I chose LOWE Guardians as they were the most helpful and understanding that owning your own business is completely different to formal employment and they were very supportive of me throughout the process. The property I’m in is exactly what I had wanted and I couldn’t have asked for nicer flatmates, the whole thing has been made so easy.
I moved into my first property guardianship just over a year ago now and can safely say it is one of the best decisions I have made. London can be quite a daunting and isolating place when you first arrive here, but being a guardian has allowed me meet so many amazing people and make some lifelong friendships. Out of the three guardianship companies I have rented with, Lowe are definitely my favourite. They take pride in their spaces and go the extra mile to make sure their guardians are comfortable and happy.
I just moved back to London after four years living abroad in Norway and I couldn’t believe how much rent had risen and standards had fallen in that time, so I found LOWE Guardians while looking for alternatives. Guardianship really brings back some of the sense of community and collaborative living that has been lost on the private rental market – everyone I meet, from fellow guardians to LOWE staff, is friendly, open and honest. Additionally on an ethical note, I hate wastefulness, so love the idea of making use of these amazing spaces instead of letting them stand empty and unloved!
I have been a property guardian for a number of years and I love it! There are so many disused properties in London and it’s a great way to live in amazing spaces at affordable prices. The property I live in in Battersea is wonderful – lovely people, fantastic living and communal areas, and a real sociable atmosphere. LOWE are the best company I have lived with as they are friendly and available to talk to in person.
I live with LOWE Guardians because there really isn’t anyone else in London offering Zone 1 living at such an affordable rate. I’ve found LOWE Guardians to be a responsive, conscientious guardian scheme that provides a great maintenance and repairs service, amazing communal spaces and a surprising amount of good quality amenities for your money.
