Umbrella Guardians make sure that our guardians understand the terms and conditions of the legal contract that they sign with us
Unlike a tenancy agreement, our license is a non-exclusive temporary contract for the living space of the property.
This means that when our contract with a property owner is terminated for a specific property our license agreement with our guardian is automatically terminated.
This does not mean that we will move our guardians out immediately, but it does mean that at this point we will serve notification of termination of the guardian’s license agreement with us. Giving our guardians four weeks’ notice to vacate the premises as required by UK law
Due to the nature of our business we try to relocate as many of our guardians as possible in other properties managed by us, but we do not guarantee 100% retention
Sadly, many Guardian companies continue to advertise that they only give Guardians 14 days to leave a property on termination, which is illegal here in the UK. If considering staying with a Guardian company or giving a property to their management do check this important point first – are they complying?
