Being a Guardian

Guardian schemes work differently to traditional rentals and it is important that all our guardians understand the difference between being a licensee and a tenant.

Your financial Situation

In order to secure a room, future guardians are required to place a returnable £800 security payment (£500 outside of London). This payment will reserve a room/flat for 7 days whilst documents are reviewed and a licence agreement is produced. All licence fees are taken on the 1st of each month, with a pro-rata fee being paid if you move into your room/flat mid-month.


If Employed - please fill out the following information
