A specially tailored Deposit Replacement Insurance product which removes the need for a tenant to pay a deposit, whilst still protecting the landlord against rent arrears and/or damage to the property. This enables the property to be let more quickly, and gives you a competitive edge over other local agents. There is no cost to the agent or the landlord in taking advantage of this scheme, and it costs the tenant the equivalent of around 1 weeks rent. Full details are available in our Members Area, from where you can request the product directly. Read more about the Deposit Replacement Insurance HERE
