Prospective renters who do not meet the landlord’s financial requirements and do not qualify to rent the unit. We remove the risk from applicants whose income is non-traditional, foreign, out-of-state, or difficult to evaluate. We also cover corporate leases and other exceptional circumstances, which we evaluate on a case by case basis.

Prospective renters do. TheGuarantors Agency offers landlords and property managers institutional strength income guarantee at no additional cost. This is a unique insurance product in that the tenant pays the premium but the landlord is the beneficiary.

Renters pay for the policy. For US-residents, a policy typically costs around 5-7% of the annual rent. For non-US residents, the cost is typically around 7-10% of the annual rent. Cost is per lease, not per tenant.
