Doug Edwards: The importance of efficient management when securing vacant properties with guardians

A recent judgement has highlighted the importance of ensuring that the legal requirements for property guardian programmes are fully met, applying the highest standards of compliance for the benefit of both the guardians and the property owners. Doug Edwards, Managing Director of VPS Property Guardians, 
discusses the value of property guardians in today’s housing market. The current rates hike controversy has bought increasing attention to property guardians’ schemes as being an alternative, albeit temporary, solution to finding affordable accommodation. Home seekers also have to contend with the rise of the cost of rent or ownership. There are some 50,000 homeless households in England alone, and the soaring costs of rent, and the high 5 to 6 figure deposits required to buy a property, has impacted hugely on people seeking accommodation.

In early 2009 the schools Business Manager, Colleen Dinner was reviewing Fire Health and Safety procedures after having been requested to do so by the acting head at that time. In particular, the school needed to be able to account for staff as accurately as they did the pupils. Colleen reviewed the various systems available in the marketplace and on the internet and decided upon a system from Tensor because “Tensor was they only company to do a Fire Roll Call system, according to my search engine, and the price was right.”
