Landlords Zero Deposit

If you're a Landlord, you can reduce the void periods by lowering the upfront cost for your tenants with the Zero Deposit Guarantee and will still be able to keep the same protection as a traditional security deposit.

Why choose Zero Deposit?

The rental process is quicker

A Zero Deposit helps tenants reduce the upfront cost of renting, which can help speed up the process and reduce void periods.

Security & Protection

A Zero Deposit Guarantee provides the same cover as a six week tenancy deposit.

Helps to attract a wider audience

By giving you the potential to attract a wider audience of tenants, you can increase demand and reduce the time taken to rent.

Supports accountable tenants

Tenants remain fully accountable for looking after your property and making rental payments, with Zero Deposit making payment to you in the event of a fair claim at the end of the tenancy. Claim disputes are settled by The Dispute Service (TDS) and paid to you or your agent within two working days.

Paperwork & hassle reduced

A Zero Deposit Guarantee is not a traditional deposit, so it doesn’t need to be registered with one of the deposit protection schemes, which can save landlords time and money.

How it works

1. Zero Deposit offer

If you the landlord choose to opt in to the scheme, the tenant will make an offer equivalent to one week's rent for a Zero Deposit Guarantee.

3. Disputes with tenants

In the event of an unsettled dispute with the tenant due to any financial loss or damage, you and the tenant will be required evidence which will be sent for expert evaluation.

2. Inventory & Checkout

At the end of the tenancy the inventory and checkout are completed as usual and if the property is left satisfactory the guarantee will end with no further action to be required.

4. Claims resolved and settled

If the expert finds in your favour, Zero Deposits will settle the claim with you and seek reimbursement from the tenant directly. Failure to reimburse may impact the tenants' credit history.
