Dot Dot Dot’s approach to property guardians and protecting empty property

We don’t just secure your property. We give it a new purpose by only working with guardians who spend their spare time supporting good causes. This means you get more reliable security and all of the flexibility that comes with property guardianship, whilst doing your bit to give back. We are proud of our selection process, which makes sure only the most responsible and conscientious people become guardians with us. And we check in with them regularly to make sure they’re keeping on top of their duties.

The benefits of working with Dot Dot Dot

Financial:

Our service can save owners on council tax, utilities, repairs and maintenance costs, as well as being cheaper than alternative empty property security services.

Building Management:

Good people make great guardians, conscientiously reporting anti-social behaviour and safety issues. Dot Dot Dot carefully manages properties (with an ISO 9001 accredited Quality Management System) to reduce the strain on your internal resources so that you can focus on the things that matter to you.

Social Value

All of our property guardians volunteer a minimum of 16 hours a month for a range of good causes. If you have specific CSR objectives, do tell us - we can work with you to help advertise opportunities in your community to our guardians.

Flexibility

We house people on temporary licences giving you the flexibility to take a property back with 30 days’ notice. Our investment in building strong relationships with our guardians means we are well placed to vacate properties smoothly and on time.

Community & Public Relations:

Our property guardians create enthusiasm, new activities and positive stories through their work and volunteering. We can work with your PR and Comms teams to spread the word about the positive impact you’re making through housing our guardians.

We secure and manage properties across England
