A company is searching for more Hartlepool and East Durham people to become property guardians.

Ad Hoc specialises in finding tenants for vacant properties where they live temporarily on reduced rates in anything from former schools to vicarages.

Not only can it save property owners up to 80% against traditional security methods, but having live-in Guardians deters anti-social behaviour and means maintenance issues get reported and dealt with much more swiftly and efficiently

Chris McCormick, Ad Hoc’s business development manager for the North East, Cumbria & Scotland, said: “Not only can it save property owners up to 80% against traditional security methods, but having live-in Guardians deters anti-social behaviour and means maintenance issues get reported and dealt with much more swiftly and efficiently.

“Meanwhile our guardians benefit from having an affordable place to live as they seek more permanent accommodation.”

He said properties offered in the town and the surrounding area had always attracted a big response.

A spokesman added: “Ad Hoc is acquiring new properties around Hartlepool on a regular basis, with the latest guardian property available for people to view now.

“In addition, a mix of self-contained flats with private bedrooms and access to spacious communal areas, alongside an old vicarage, are available for guardians to live in now.”

Fully vetted property guardians ensure premises are protected from threats such as squatting, vandalism, and asset stripping.
