What is a
zero deposit

Zero Deposit makes renting more affordable for tenants by providing an alternative to the traditional security deposit. This can help speed up the renting process and reduce void periods.

Tenants buy a Zero Deposit Guarantee for your property, which provides protection equivalent to a six week deposit.

Your tenants remain fully accountable for looking after your property and paying rent.

What if I get
a Bad tenant?

Zero Deposit does not mean zero responsibility. Bad tenants are not let off the hook.

We pay approved claims within two working days. We then pursue the tenant for payment.

Less than 1% of tenancies end with a full disputeᐩ, but when they do we’ve got you covered. (ᐩSource TDS April 2017)
