Frequently asked questions

As soon as you require your property back, we give guardians 28 days to leave, after which it’s yours, in the condition we got it in – worst case scenario. Best case? If Sentry has refurbished your property, it will be in a better condition than it originally was.

We require the building to have the bare minimum necessary for it to be habitable. This simply means running water, electricity, water, and windproof windows. Sentry guardians will take care of everything else necessary. 

Our guardians are happy to live in properties ranging from self-contained flats/houses to former schools, office blocks, schools, pubs, care homes, and even police stations. We’re pretty amazing at turning any commercial property into guardian homes.

None at all. We take on all running costs without you paying a penny.
In most cases, you get a steady monthly income while simultaneously protecting your property – all without doing a thing.
We only take on properties with a minimum contract of 6 months. This is because getting the building ready for guardians is a considerable expense on our part that cannot be justified by a  term of fewer than 6 months. However, we do offer a Caretaker service for properties that need to be secured for a very short term, so please do contact us to discuss your needs.
Yes, that can be easily arranged.

When a live-in guardian won't cut it

Sometimes, having a live-in guardian is not the right option. If your property is in really poor shape, we cannot charge people to live there. Similarly, if it only needs to be secured for a few months, placing guardians there isn’t worth the time and money invested. In such cases, we have additional options to secure your vacant space.
