ZERO DEPOSIT GUARANTEE
Knight Frank have partnered with Zero Deposit to offer a Zero Deposit Guarantee in place of a traditional deposit. A Zero Deposit Guarantee costs the equivalent of one week’s rent, freeing up your cash to make renting more affordable.
At the end of the tenancy, the inventory and check-out are completed in the usual manner and provided you leave the property in a satisfactory condition with no outstanding rent or bills, the Zero Deposit Guarantee expires with no further action required. In the event of any damage to the property or any outstanding rent or bills, you will be required to reimburse the Landlord. You remain completely responsible for any financial loss or damage due to the Landlord as you would with a traditional tenancy deposit. If you dispute the Landlord’s claim, you and the Landlord will be asked for evidence which will then be sent for expert evaluation by the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.
Zero Deposit Guarantees are not available on all properties and are offered subject to the landlord’s approval.
Further information can be found at Zero Deposit.
