start the quiz
 
What's your first name? *

 
and your last name? *

 
Are you an active volunteer? *

We'd call you an active volunteer if you have volunteered within the last few months.
     
 
Even though you don't currently volunteer, do you think it is something you could start to do? *

One of the things we pride ourselves on is our success at introducing new people to the wide range of fun volunteering opportunities in their neighbourhood. Don't worry if you've never done it before – we're here to help!
     
 
Are you ready to move into a new home immediately? *

Your chances of being placed in accommodation are much higher if you can move quickly.
     
 
In how many months will you be ready to move? *

 
Are you... *


 
Are you currently or have you been a property guardian with another organisation? *

     
 
All our properties are safe to live in, however are usually unfurnished. Would you be happy to source your own appliances and furniture? *

     
 
If you were living in a Dot Dot Dot property and we gave you 28 days' notice to move out, what would you do for accommodation? *

Understanding that you may have to leave your home within 28 days is one of the key features of being a guardian. We may be able to rehouse you in another Dot Dot Dot property, but we cannot guarantee this.
 
Do you have the funds to pay a one-off £750 returnable deposit plus the weekly licence fee of £40-£75? Remember that you will usually need to budget for your share of bills and council tax, too. *

Being a property guardian is much cheaper than being a regular tenant, but you still need to be able to cover the costs
     
 
Based on what you've told us, we think Dot Dot Dot is a great option for you. You're now just a few clicks away from seeing the results of your quiz.

 
If we need to talk to you about your application for housing, what's the best number to call you on? *

 
Where would you be interested in living? *

If you can be flexible about location, you can usually be housed quicker.
