The PGP team and our property guardians are on hand 24/7 to deal with any issues that might arise with empty properties that we look after
PGP staff carry out monthly inspections and weekly checks to assess any risks, identify maintenance issues and maintain health & safety standards at our property guardian buildings.
PGP works with charity partners, the VOA and local authorities to achieve the best possible savings on empty rates and council tax payable.
PGP guardians come from a variety of backgrounds but all are working professionals who need affordable accommodation in the right location.
In return, they are willing to live flexibly as property guardians to help protect vacant buildings.
Many are experienced property guardians who have lived in several guardianships and prefer the property guardian lifestyle to “normal renting”.
Around 30% are key workers in London and we give priority to those performing front line roles in the capital.
By careful selection and developing excellent working relationships with our property guardian community PGP achieve the best possible results securing vacant buildings by occupation.
Upon termination of the agreement between PGP and the property owner the guardians will vacate and PGP will hand back the empty building and return the keys.
Property guardians are licencees on 28 days’ notice and do not have exclusive possession of any part of the building.
PGP has comprehensive liability and professional indemnity insurance underwritten at Lloyd’s of London, which covers us for liability we may incur in connection with our business.
We are also able to reduce insurance premiums at properties occupied by our guardians which have previously rated as “unoccupied”.
