Deposit-Free Renting

Save up to 95%* on a rental deposit

Want to rent without a deposit? Walton & Allen estate and letting agents has the solution.

When looking to rent a property you are typically charged around 5-8 weeks rent as a security deposit, as well as the usual month’s rent in advance. Most tenants are already living in rented accommodation and will not receive this back until after they have had to pay another deposit for a new property. Obviously this is a lot of cash and would be better off in your account!

Walton & Allen are offering a solution to this problem where you may never have to pay another deposit ever again! It comes in the form of an insurance model, underwritten by Hiscox Underwriting Ltd. For a small yearly one off fee you are covered in the same way as a rental deposit and will have the left over cash to spend on moving essentials. The cost of the insurance policy is around 5-15% of the deposit value of the advertised property.

There is a small additional charge of 5% in additional rental costs per calendar month.
