A deposit is an amount of money that the tenant pays as security for any damages that may occur during the rental period. All rentals on Blocket Bostad are covered by a one-month rent deposit. We take care of and hold the deposit throughout the rental period to make it easier for you as the landlord and safer for the tenant.
If the tenant has an approved credit check, Blocket Bostad finances the deposit (we call it Deposit-Free). It's nothing you need to worry about; as the landlord, you are always covered regardless.
Your rental is also insured to protect you from any damages of a more expensive nature.
What does deposit-free rental mean?
Some tenants can rent without a deposit. Blocket Bostad carries the credit risk for these deposits. If you have an approved deposit claim at the end of the rental period, you will be reimbursed directly by Blocket Bostad, and the tenant will be invoiced accordingly.
This is a way to make the rental market a bit fairer and more accessible. To rent without a deposit, the tenant must have an approved credit check.
What happens with the deposit at the end of the rental period?
You will have ten days after the agreement has expired to initiate a deposit case and claim deposit compensation for any damages.
Holiday accommodations and deposits
For holiday accommodations, we never charge a deposit. Instead, we offer good protection through rental insurance tailored for holiday accommodations.
