Deposit as rental security for tenant and landlord

Security Deposit – A security deposit is a set amount of money that a tenant must present to a landlord before the rental period begins. The amount of money is used to allow the landlord to repair any damage that may have occurred at the end of the lease term, or if lease obligations have not been met, the landlord has the option to pay the costs. The rent deposit can be the amount of 1 to 3 months’ rent. There is a possibility to open a rent deposit account at the tenant’s bank. The fixed amount is blocked for the tenant and can only be released by the signature of the landlord.
