It's better being a property guardian with Dot Dot Dot

It’s the most affordable way to live

Being a property guardian means that you are looking after a building which would otherwise be empty, as your home. Here's an example of a 1 bed flat in London zone 4:

£284 pcm
Dot Dot Dot
£600 pcm
property guardian competitor
£875 pcm
private rental

* Figures based on a search in September 2016. We price all our properties at around 30% of market rent. We do this so that property guardians can benefit from dramatically cheaper living costs, while covering our management costs.


“The property guardian scheme with Dot Dot Dot enables me to simultaneously live in London, work part time and maintain a focus on my art practice.”
Lewis, East London

“I’ve been living with Dot Dot Dot for 2 years. In essence it’s enabled me to do my masters and fund myself through it while living in London. I think I’d be paying at least double what I pay now if I was in traditional rental.”
Rebecca, East London
