Improving lives in a housing crisis

Your empty buildings could improve someone’s life. Whatever the reason for your building standing empty, our guardians will keep your property safe and secure, and help the local community through charitable work on local causes.

Benefits of working with Dot Dot Dot

  • An icon of a house

    Empty property security

    Our thorough applicant vetting process ensures that only the most responsible people become guardians with us and look after your empty properties.

  • A cog icon

    12 years of quality experience

    From large regeneration sites to a decommissioned youth club, from residential to commercial projects, bringing new purpose to empty buildings has taken on a variety of forms since we launched in 2011.

  • A key icon

    Financial savings

    Our service can save you time, and money, on council tax, utilities, hard security and property repairs. Using guardians is more affordable than traditional empty property security services.

  • A medal icon

    Unique volunteer-based approach

    All our property guardians commit to volunteering a minimum of 16 hours a month for a range of good causes, delivering social impact and value for the community.

Dot Dot Dot has provided us with a service which we can trust. Not only do their guardians provide a presence and help make our residents feel safe during this interim period, they are fully involved in the community, offering valuable volunteering too."
