Zero Deposit also provides transparency for tenants, with 100% of lets protected with 6 weeks’ worth of cover – even with a cash version where the firm tops up the extra week.

Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson, Chief Operating Officer at Alto, part of Houseful, says: “The main barrier for today’s tenants is raising a deposit with over 70% of tenants borrowing to fund their deposit.

“Zero Deposit removes this barrier, widening the pool of prospective tenants for letting agents and ensuring they find the perfect match for their landlords.


“We’re delighted to partner with the leading provider in this space and believe that implementing it is an easy way for Alto customers to stand out from the competition.”
