Ad Hoc launches Property Guardian Charter to raise industry standards

In a first for the vacant property industry, Ad Hoc Property Management has launched its ‘Respect for Guardians’ Charter in a bid to raise standards across the industry.

Propert-Guardians-CharterWith the continual need for extra homes at a time of rocketing house prices, more emphasis is being placed on bringing empty properties back to life to alleviate the housing crisis in the short-term. However, with a limited amount of best practice being adhered to currently, these buildings can vary in quality; something Ad Hoc does not accept.

The Charter is the first part of a wider campaign by Ad Hoc to bring about a necessary raising of standards across the industry over the course of 2016. Ensuring best practice is adhered to at all times, be it through an improved standard of properties for Guardians to live in, or making sure that Guardians not only have everything they require but also are communicated with in the correct manner, the aim is for all organisations to get on board and agree to these changes.  

Simon Finneran, managing director of Ad Hoc Property Management explained:

“Our promise to Guardians forms a core part of our business relationship as custodians and accommodation providers. With this Charter, we aim to be open and honest at all times, and are fully committed to a win/win relationship based on mutual trust and respect. This Charter forms the basis by which we aim to bring an increased amount of best practice to our industry by the end of 2016.”

Founded in the Netherlands in 1990, Ad hoc established itself in the UK in 2006 and now has nine offices managing hundreds of properties from former care homes to blocks of flats and mansion to former schools, all accommodating thousands of guardians.
