At Dot Dot Dot, we don’t allow anyone under 18 to live in our properties. Property guardians need to be ready to move house with 28 days’ notice whenever a property owner would like their building back, and this is much harder for children who need continuity and access to, for example, the same schools, nurseries and GPs, than it is for flexible, independent adults.

At Dot Dot Dot we love all creatures great and small, however, as building security and maintenance is paramount to property guardianship, our properties are unsuitable for pets.

As Dot Dot Dot guardians are licence holders and not tenants, you can be asked to move on from the property with 28 days’ notice. We need all guardians to have a move-on plan which covers where they would stay and how they would manage if given notice. 

If you are matched with a property, you will need to pay a one-off refundable security payment (equivalent of five weeks' fees) plus the monthly licence fee that can range between £300 and £1,000. Depending on the property, you may also need to budget for your share of the bills and council tax. Monthly licence fees vary for every property and are advertised on our website.

It's helpful for us to know where people are hearing about Dot Dot Dot so that we can continue to find brilliant new guardians.
