You gotta fight for your right to safety

Part of Dot Dot Dot’s mission as a social enterprise is to push up standards in the property guardian sector – and one of the ways we try to do this is to clarify and publicise the legal rights that all guardians and would-be guardians have.

The best way to keep a building secure? Keep it full of life

It’s a headache for the owner of the building, and it’s a problem for those that live… Read More

Can your property be secure and have social impact?

Earlier this year Dot Dot Dot conducted a survey with our property owners to shed some light on what their top priorities are, and what impact they seek from property guardianship as means of a solution. Our survey revealed that one of the top priorities for property owners is the security of their buildings. They… Read More
