Helping those in housing need
There are many different types of housing need. More and more people are simply priced out of well-managed accommodation. Property guardianship will not be suitable for all, but it is a good housing option for those individuals that it suits. Well managed property guardianship properties add to the supply of good housing options local authorities (LAs) can recommend.
With the Homelessness Reduction Act, now is a particularly important time to explore whether local authorities and other relevant organisations can successfully signpost suitable people to responsible property guardian companies such as Dot Dot Dot.
Dot Dot Dot is beginning to receive referrals from LAs and is piloting more formal partnerships with a selection of homelessness charities. We believe we are making a positive difference to society by widening the pool of people who can become property guardians. For this impact to scale, Dot Dot Dot will need as many vacant properties to manage as possible.
Are you a housing options adviser at an LA?
We would be delighted if you began to signpost relevant people to Dot Dot Dot. It can be as simple as pointing people towards our website, where they can find out more before commencing the application process.

Are you responsible for empty properties?
With more properties under our management, we can maximise the number of people in housing need who are able to benefit from a more affordable, well-managed housing option. Find out more about how we can manage all types of empty properties – including standalone residential voids, empty commercial properties and properties which become vacant as part of a regeneration scheme – over on our “Empty Property Security” page.
