Renting a flat costs a lot. You have to pay the monthly rent. If you can’t, you might be kicked out of the place and you would have to start over again. There is another option though and it is to become a property custodian. This is a setup where you will be asked to take care of a certain property. In exchange, you can stay there and live in one of the rooms while paying a very low rate as a rental fee. This is a unique setup in the sense that under normal circumstances, it would cost you thousands of pounds per month just to rent the place.
If you happen to find the perfect location, you would be silly not to close the deal. It is easy to feel hesitant though. Why would property owners accept such a low rate? Why can’t they just hire other people to do the job?
The first reason is that the owner might be really rich and have a lot of other properties being taken care of. As there is no one there to take care of his other property, it is in his best interest to just hire someone to rent the place at a low rate and be a property custodian at the same time. In doing so, he is assured that the property is well-maintained. He also earns money for the monthly rent. It is way better than just allowing the property to stay there without being touched. It will simply weaken the structure. When the owner goes there, the property will be difficult to recognise.
There are other property owners who understand how difficult it is to find a place to rent at a low rate. This is their main motivation in allowing the place to be rented at a low rate. They know that they are not using the property in the meantime anyway. Therefore, instead of letting it sit there without being used, finding people to occupy the place and be of help to them is a better choice.
In short, you must understand why these property owners might have their place rented out at a really low rate. If you were in their shoes, you might also do the same thing. After knowing about this opportunity, you might want to give it a shot. Imagine working a full time job and being a part time property custodian paying a very low rate for monthly rental. This would allow you to save a lot of money and make your goals a reality. You can check out ADHOCProperty.co.uk for more information if you are interested in becoming a property custodian.
