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

Dot Dot Dot is an award-winning social enterprise and a different kind of property guardian company. We have a strong track record in providing vacant property protection and achieve this through placing and managing excellent property guardians who are committed to the local area. Our focus on social impact and quality of service are the two key differentiators with other property guardian companies.

Security & Financial Savings

We provide reliable protection and financial savings for owners of all types of empty properties

Social Value

All our property guardians volunteer a minimum of 16 hours a month for a range of local and national causes

Care for Buildings

Good people make great guardians, conscientiously reporting anti-social behaviour and safety issues

Flexibility

We house people on temporary licences giving you the flexibility to take a property back with 30 days’ notice

Placemaking

Our property guardians create enthusiasm, new activities and positive stories through their work and volunteering

The benefits of working with Dot Dot Dot

Financial:

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

Building Management:

Empty buildings are lived in and looked after, property guardians spot and report issues early, and Dot Dot Dot carefully manage 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

Community & Public Relations:

Property guardians make friendly neighbours and increase footfall in the area, all while creating social value locally, and reducing and reporting anti-social behaviour. Dot Dot Dot's expertise includes public relations and community engagement work, building on the positive impact of our property guardians

We secure and manage properties across England
