Property Guardians

Guardian Joseph, lives in an old building in the centre of the city.

He says: "The big selling point for me was the value for money. My rent is so much cheaper I can actually save. I work in the legal profession in the city centre so the location is ideal. I've lived in the area for most of my life so I can move at short notice if I had to but I like living here it's got character as one of the older buildings in the city centre."

Guardian Steven, is a recent graduate.

He says: "I was amazed when I saw the building it's really magical. I love the whole idea of living in this big space and being able to design and shape it how I want. I'd looked at lots of properties but most were really small and cramped. When I saw this I signed up there and then."

All Property Guardians have their own secure room, which may include a private toilet or bathroom, but will share kitchen, bathroom and communal areas with other guardians.
