Following feedback from many of our Guardians on the property search tool, we have made significant improvements to the way it helps locate properties. Instead of searching by town, we are enabling Guardians and potential Guardians to search for properties by radius in two simple ways. The first is by clicking on an area of the map to see what is nearby; the second is by typing in the location you want to search around. Whichever way you choose to search, the end result will be an improved experience and a quicker search. To find out more, or to start searching for your next property, click here.

Alongside the search facility, we have also improved the registration process, by taking away a lot of the administration burden. If you are interested in a property, you can now register through the website whilst you are searching. In the same process, if you are not a Guardian currently, you can register to be one through a quick telephone call with us.

Finally, if you spot a vacant property on your travels, let us know by filling in this form, and you could win £250 in High Street vouchers.
