Company is offering chance to cut your rent bill by up to €1,000 a month by becoming a guardian in one of thousands of vacant homes across the country

A company is offering punters the chance to rent a property in Dublin 4 for just €300 a month.

You can say goodbye to a massive rent bill each month by becoming a guardian in one of thousands of vacant homes across the country.

Camelot Property Management  is looking for guardians to move into a range of properties with fees as low as €140 a month for a house in Cork, Limerick and Waterford.

For example, the average rent in Cork is currently €891 but you could live in this former convent in Cork for just €140 a month saving yourself a staggering €751 a month.

The company is also offering homes in Dublin 4 for just €300 a month compared to average fees of €1,800 leaving cash-strapped guardians with savings of €1,500 a month.

You could live in this former care home in Dublin 19, which includes areas of Sandyford and Stillorgan, for under €300 a month.

Camelot Property Management secures buildings by filling the empty space with people looking for affordable housing.

These people are known as Guardians. Monthly costs for a 5 bedroom house in Dublin 4 start at €300 a month inclusive of all bills. For comparison, prices in Cork and Wexford start at €150 a month.

Since opening their first office in Ireland in 2010, Camelot has seen steady growth as the concept has become popular with punters hoping to save on rent.

There has been a 50% increase in the number of people signing up as Guardians in the past 2 years.

Paul Cosnett, Country Manager, Camelot Property Management said:“When Guardians take occupancy in properties we see a dramatic decrease in the levels of dilapidation, vandalism and crime in the surrounding areas.

“Couple that with the fact we are offering a cheaper renting alternative in a property that would otherwise be vacant the Camelot offering is a win-win situation for everyone.”

There are currently over 28,000 unoccupied commercial buildings and 223,152 vacant residential properties.

Paul Cosnett says tackling the problem of vacant properties is beneficial to both rent seekers and vacant property owners.

He added: “There is a clear need for more rented accommodation in Ireland and there is also a rising vacant property issue that shows no sign of slowing down.

“Our vacant property management solution addresses both these issues.

“ We truly believe that if more vacant property owners took advantage of our service and allowed our Guardians to protect their buildings we could provide cheap accommodation for thousands.

“The benefits for vacant property owners who avail of our service are numerous, they include up to 60 per cent on insurance premiums, minimised risk of theft and vandalism to property and reduce risk of dilapidation”.
