“That vps-guardians.co.uk has already seen 50,000 visitors to the website, even before it has been officially launched, is an indication not only of the potential for the property guardian sector, but is also a testimony for VPS’ recognition as the leading quality provider in the UK.” explains Doug Edwards, the managing director for VPS Guardians.
“Running a property guardians’ programme not only helps to secure properties that are temporarily vacant, but in a small way also alleviates the pressure on housing. We were one of the original providers in the UK to support this innovative option, and have also led the way in ensuring such schemes are managed ethically and safely.”
The VPS Guardians service offers affordable, flexible spaces for people to live and work. These spaces are available on a short-term basis, ranging from 1 month to 2 years and in a range of buildings, from offices though to apartments. Property Guardianship matches working professionals or businesses with affordable accommodation across the UK.
Last month, VPS highlighted a white paper that sets out the legal & safety obligations for guardians and property owners. It was issued by VPS and six other property guardian companies, working together to drive up standards, and to help inform and safeguard the interests of both property owners and guardians.

Notes for editors:
VPS Guardian Services provides a cost-effective way to keep temporarily vacant properties safe, secure and maintained to a high standard through occupancy. Not only is having a property occupied a strong and visible deterrent, having it operational also significantly helps to reduce any maintenance concerns such as burst pipes etc.
The service commences with a free, no-obligation site risk assessment, enabling VPS to identify specific risks to a property and to advise on the most suitable solution to ensure the on-going security of the asset.
