Essential Criteria

Being a property guardian isn't suitable for everyone. These questions will go through Dot Dot Dot's essential criteria for being a guardian.
 
Are you over 18 years old? *

     
 
Are you intending to live with any children or dependents? *

     
 
Are you intending to live with any pets or animals? *

     
 
Are you facing any criminal convictions or do you have any unspent criminal convictions? *

     
 
Employment and finances

As a property guardian with Dot Dot Dot, you will need to pay a £750 deposit and a weekly licence fee. Depending on the building and it's location, we anticipate this to be £120 per week or less, including bills. 

Being a property guardian is much cheaper than being a regular tenant, but you still need to be able to cover the costs.
 
Will you have the funds to pay the £750 deposit? *

Dot Dot Dot require a £750 deposit per person for all of their properties as many of them are of high value. They return desposits within 28 days and will only make reasonable deductions if there are belongings left behind, you haven't paid your bills or there is significant damage to your property.
     
 
Where will you source the £750 deposit from? *

Eg. savings, previous deposit
 
Are you currently employed? *

     
 
Tell us a bit more about your employment... *

Eg. Are you self employed? Work for an organisation? What is your job title?
 
What are your plans for employment? *

This could be plans for getting a job, self employment or internships.
 
Will you have the funds to pay the weekly licence fee? *

Depending on the building and it's location, we anticipate this to be £120 per week or less, including bills.
     
 
Notice and moving plans

Property guardians are on a 28 day notice period, which can be shorter than being a tenant. This means that when the property owner needs the property back, Dot Dot Dot will give you 28 days notice to leave. 

It is important that you are prepared for this and that you have some options in mind of where you will go.
 
When are you looking to move? *

Eg. After Christmas, in two weeks, next June..
 
If you were living in a Dot Dot Dot property and they gave you 28 days ' notice to move out, what would you do for accommodation? *

Eg. Move in with friends, move in with parents... 

Understanding that you may have to leave your home within 28 days is one of the key features of being a guardian.
 
You will need to provide details of two references later in the process. Do you have two people who could do this for you? *

These references need to be professional. They could be from an employer, someone you volunteer with or a previous landlord. We will not accept a family member of friend as a reference.
