The Union of Precarious Dwellings is currently investigating the role of
property guardian companies in managing vacant or short-life properties.
Throughout the course of our research we have been concerned to find that
many property guardian companies seem to be deliberately ignoring and
withholding many of their guardian's legitimate rights and demands as

By collecting experiences of residents on paper and raising awareness of
these violations of occupants rights, we aim to improve the legal status
of guardians and temporary occupants.
Can we ask you for a short summary (1 A4 sheet) of your experiences as a
guardian for these companies?

We would particularly like information about:

    * Positive and negative experiences with property guardian companies.
    * How you viewed the rules stipulated in the contract you signed as a
guardian. (Regarding home peace / privacy, fees, notice periods and /
or other requirements).
    * The reason(s) why you decided to become a property guardian.
    * Things you would like to see improved by these companies.

All replies/comments can be made anonymously.
