Surety bonds bring together three parties (renter, property manager and insurance company) in a mutual, legally binding agreement that protects you and increases the overall applicant pool for your properties. The principal or tenant purchases the bond to guarantee they will live on the property peacefully and fulfill the lease agreement. The obligee – you, the property manager – is the entity that requires the bond. The surety is the insurance company that backs the bond. The surety provides a line of credit in case the principal fails to fulfill the lease agreement.
Applicants do not need to qualify separately for a surety bond. If a tenant is qualified to rent your property, they are automatically qualified to participate in a surety bond. It’s that easy!
