About you

This section asks the essential questions, so that we can contact you about viewings.

Your choice about whether to share with another guardian

We know you have already answered this question at the quiz stage, but we need to reconfirm your answer and give you the chance to give us more details if necessary. We will not automatically exclude you if you do, we will need to talk to you a little more about the situation and make a decision based on the circumstances.

Your Housing Preferences 

We use the information in this section to make sure that we contact you about the properties that will be most suitable for you.

The more flexible you are about where you are willing to live and your timescale for moving, the more likely we are able to match you with a property.

Your chances of being placed in accommodation are higher if you can move quickly. However, if you’re not looking to move imminently that’s useful to know too – we’ll avoid inviting you to viewings too soon.

Your experience and understanding of Property Guardianship

It is not essential for you to have been a guardian before, however it is helpful for us to know how much information you need on property guardianship.

A key feature of being a property guardian is that you may have to leave a property at four weeks' notice. We may be able to rehouse you in another Dot Dot Dot property, but we cannot guarantee this so we need to check what options you have.

Your Financial Situation

As a Dot Dot Dot guardian, you will need to pay a refundable security payment (equivalent of 5 weeks' fees) and a licence fee of between £200-£750 per month (depending on the location and property), plus utilities and council tax in most cases.

Please enter the details of your employment history
Your employment information is critical for us if you’re going to be housed as a Dot Dot Dot guardian. We are aware it is sensitive information and we handle it accordingly. If you have any queries about this, please do not hesitate to call us.

Your Volunteering Interests

All Dot Dot Dot guardians commit to spending at least 16 hours a month volunteering for a charitable purpose of their choice, while they are housed with us.

Not every guardian that we house has volunteered before. We look for people who are passionate and enthusiastic about getting involved with community projects and volunteering and who are ready to get started making an impact.

Please try and provide us with as much detail as possible. It would be good to know when you have volunteered, why/if you enjoyed it and include any roles taken on an informal basis, or outside organised charities


Having reference details in advance will help us fast track your application and get you housed as quickly as possible, however we will not contact your references until you have formally expressed interest in a property.
Additional preferences and information 
These questions are optional, however the more detail you can provide about what you are looking for, the more likely we will be able to find the right property for you

In all our properties you could receive 28 days notice at any point, although on average we have properties under management for around 12 months. If you are particularly interested in staying somewhere for a short period (i.e. 3 months or less), tick here.
