How Does The Rent Deposit Insurance Work?

The rental deposit insurance guarantees the deposit required by the landlord and charges the tenant an annual insurance premium to cover the risk of default. This has the advantage that the tenant does not have to pay the deposit himself and has to block the money for the entire rental period. As security, the landlord receives a deed of surety ship which entitles him to assert claims, such as outstanding rent or damage to the rental object. The amount of the maximum performance sum is limited to the agreed deposit sum.

However, tenants must also be aware that this is not a classical insurance cover, whereby the insurance covers the damage in full and no cost sharing on the part of the policyholder is necessary. This means that any payments made by the rental deposit insurance to the landlord are reclaimed from the tenant.
