My lease has already started. Can I purchase coverage in the middle of a lease?

Unfortunately, you cannot purchase Rent or Deposit Coverage after your lease has started. Coverage can only be purchased prior to the lease start date or at renewal.

What are the application steps?

  1. The first step in the application process is selecting a building. Buildings enrolled with TheGuarantors will appear in the drop-down as you type in the address.
    • Please note that we are only able to review applications for buildings that have partnered with TheGuarantors. 
  2. Next, you’ll need to enter the unit number for the apartment you’re applying for.
    • This means you’ll need to speak with the building’s leasing agent to select an apartment and submit an application for it with the leasing office before you can apply with TheGuarantors. If your building wants you to obtain coverage, they’ll send you an invitation link to apply with TheGuarantors or ask you to apply directly on our website.
  3. To apply for a policy with TheGuarantors, you’ll need to answer a short questionnaire containing basic questions about yourself and the apartment you’re applying for, including the unit number and monthly rent of the apartment. You’ll also be asked to upload a copy of a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, state ID, passport, or visa. 
  4. You are not required to submit any financial documents or proof of employment with your application. We will contact you directly via email if we determine these documents are needed.
