FAQs
Rent
How should I pay my rent?

Paying your rent by Direct Debit is the best option, speak to Touchstone to help with setting this up.

My earnings have dropped, and I can no longer afford my rent? Can I pay a lower rent?

Give Touchstone a call and they will be able to advise on financial support options available to you.

Will my rent increase annually?

Yes, but all our intermediate and affordable homes will never be more than 80% of local market rents.

My earnings have increased, and I am now over the affordability cap. Can I stay in my Dolphin home?

Your earnings are only reviewed at the point of tenancy renewal, and if you earn over the cap your tenancy would not be renewed; this is to ensure our homes go to those who need them.   We will work with you to agree a suitable timeframe to move out and find a new home.

I would like to move to a bigger Dolphin Living home or a Dolphin Living home in another location?

If you are currently living in a Dolphin home in Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham or Camden you need to reapply via the local authority. For all other boroughs please contact Touchstone

Can I buy my Dolphin Living home?

No, all our homes are only available for rent.

My tenancy agreement is due for renewal soon; will it be automatically renewed?

At the point of renewal you will have reference checks and affordability checks again; this is to ensure our homes are still going to those that qualify and need them. If you pass these checks and there have been no breaches of your tenancy your agreement will be renewed.

I am moving out, can I nominate someone to take over my flat?

No, all potential residents have to follow the application process.

No, and any residents found to be letting their home through Airbnb or similar, or subletting will be evicted and earnings made from subletting can be subject to full recovery by Dolphin Living.

Yes, as long as you qualify for the Accelerator programme.  You will have to follow the accelerator application process.
