Move In Residents. Move Out Risk.

Alternatives to cash deposits are increasingly becoming part of the property management landscape. Even before COVID-19, traditional security deposits were often a financial burden for residents that deterred them from signing a lease. But, for property managers, offering a deposit alternative that lowers resident move-in costs hasn't always been hassle-free. 

Thankfully, not all security deposit alternatives are created equal. At Assurant, we created a suite of deposit solutions that helps you lower move-in costs for residents, easily manage your deposits online and quickly collect resident-owed balances when a renter moves out. Whether you're responding to new state and municipal requirements to offer cash deposit alternatives or you're focused on making your properties more competitive, we can help.

Lower Move-In Costs

A nationwide Assurant study found that renters rank lower move-in costs as one of their top two priorities when it comes to choosing a new rental. And 71% believe it's important for a surety bond alternative to be offered during the leasing process. With Assurant's FlexDeposit surety bond, you get the same property coverage as a traditional deposit while your residents get lower upfront move-in costs. So, whether you're dealing with an younger, up-and-comer renter or a renter looking to downsize, you can increase your occupancy without sacrificing your protection.
