Property Guardians


Why Guardianship?

Our Property Guardians are clear about why they have decided to choose Guardianship over the Private rental sector.

‘Guardianship saves you 50% – 60% on housing costs compared to the rental market’

‘There’s so much space in commercial buildings..big windows and light’

‘I’ve lived in some amazing buildings..and I really feel part of something good, like taking care of our heritage’

‘I’m saving for a house deposit and Guardianship is brilliantly affordable’

‘Its social and friendly after a day at work’

‘I couldn’t afford to rent from the private sector as I’m studying a PhD. I work from home and provide property security throughout the day’

‘This is my 3rd Guardianship and I really like living in different building and exploring new neighbourhoods’

‘I’m a nurse and my friend in the room opposite is a teacher. There are filmmakers and baristas here too. We work together to keep the property clean and tidy and properly secured’
