Why VPS Guardian Services?

  • As UK’s market leader in vacant property services, we have a proven track record of providing a full end to end solution to protect vacant properties from squatters, vandals and trespassers.
  • Over 16 years of industry experience in securing properties in different locations across the UK and of varying sizes and types from vacant pubs, former offices and warehouses to listed buildings and disused commercial premises.
  • We pride ourselves on our industry-leading vetting and selection process, ensuring the superiority of the individuals living in your property.
  • No weekly management fees or hidden charges. We cover the cost of the fit out of the building prior to our guardians move in: install security alarms, shower units, cooking facilities and more. We also take responsibility for any contribution required for utility bills.
  • We take great care of the guardian properties we look after. Our Guardian service includes monthly inspections, carried out by SIA trained inspectors, with all information provided in a detailed inspection report:
    • Real-time data and status updates
    • Utility checks and meter readings
    • MI & reports and individual job sheets
    • Leak detection

We ensure a Fire Risk Assessment is carried out by Fire Safety Professionals. We only require 4 weeks’ notice to re-house the guardians and return the building to you.
