Requirements to Become a Property Guardian

How to become a property guardian?

So you like the idea of becoming a property guardian? Great! There are a few requirements that you need to meet in order to become a property caretaker with LOWE.

Finding property guardians who take pride in where they live is our priority. Therefore, we extensively vet, interview and meet face to face with every prospective guardian prior to being accepted into a property, to ensure that only the most socially responsible and reliable individuals occupy our spaces and are trusted to take good care of the buildings they live in.

In return, becoming a property guardian provides workers and place-makers with an affordable place to live in the heart of London and other parts of the UK. Our guardians are given the opportunity and support to live in their areas of work without having to commute. All we ask is that you are a responsible person and take good care of the premises whilst you live there. A win-win situation for guardian and property owner alike!
