Advertisers may require you to pay a security deposit at the beginning of your tenancy as a form of insurance against damages you might incur during your stay. You should receive your deposit back when you leave, providing there hasn’t been any damage.
At this stage, deposits are organized directly between you and the landlord and not paid through HousingAnywhere. In general, all deposit matters have to be discussed with the advertiser directly, and we recommend that they be addressed in the contract.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
