The costs of temporary management by Guardians of London are kept as low as possible. In general, we ask you to pay the utilities costs to make the property habitable, plus a modest monthly fee:
- All outgoings for the premises (utilities as far as the site is occupied, empty business rates, insurance)
- Weekly management fee: £25 – £250, depending on the size of the property, not the number of guardians
- Initial investments to make the property habitable (repairs, smashed windows, new locks, installation/removal of mobile shower cabinet and electric shower, sinks)
- These costs are reasonably lower than the cost of hiring in security guards or the cost of repairing long-standing damages, as a result of the building being vacant.
