Umbrella was formed in 2011 by a Property Surveyor and a group of property developers to meet their own security needs for vacant properties. Having experienced problems such as theft, vandalism, squatting and high security costs, the group agreed that a guardian business would be the perfect solution.
Umbrella grew rapidly from dealing with properties within the Greater London area to managing vacant properties nationwide from 2013 onwards. Within a space of just two years, the business quickly established itself in the highly competitive guardian industry, winning major contracts with local authorities and other major organisations focusing on quality of service and guardian comfort. The portfolio of services has expanded from dealing with security, to offering total management systems to vacant properties.
Currently the Umbrella team includes staff with more than 30 years of vacant property management experience across every property sector
Even if we can’t offer guardians or feel that your property is unsuited, we do have the industry know-how and contacts to offer an alternative solution
