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.
