How does Insurami work?
When you find an office space that you like and agree on the terms of the lease with the landlord, you can choose a deposit guarantee with Insurami instead of a traditional deposit. Instead of paying a big one-time cash deposit, you pay Insurami an annual payment so you can keep more of your money up front.
What does the deposit guarantee cover?
Everything that a traditional deposit would cover, up to the guarantee amount. That includes any unpaid rent or damages you might incur during your lease.
Do I get a refund if there are no claims?
You won’t receive a refund of the annual payments you’ve already made, but you can expect lower annual premiums with reliable payments over time.
Can I still opt for a traditional deposit?
Yes. You can choose a traditional deposit if you want to deposit cash up front.
What happens when a landlord makes a claim?
You remain responsible for all rent and dilapidation claims as per your lease. Once validated, we will pay the landlord the agreed funds and seek reimbursement from you.
What happens if I don’t repay Insurami?
If you don’t repay Insurami, your debt will be passed onto a debt collection agency.

Landlords
How does Insurami work?
Tenants agree their lease terms with you, the landlord, as they normally would. Instead of paying a one-time cash deposit to secure their lease, they pay Insurami a monthly fee for a deposit guarantee. This guarantee pays out any necessary costs like a traditional deposit would.
What does the deposit guarantee cover?
Everything that a traditional deposit would cover, up to the guarantee amount. That includes defaults of rent and any damages unpaid at the end of the lease.
Who covers the cost of the guarantee?
The tenant pays the costs. The landlord doesn’t pay anything.
Do I have to do anything differently?
Not really. Insurami will fit in seamlessly with your current process so you can do less paperwork and still get the security you need with every lease.
How long does it take to pay out claims?
You can expect payment within 5 working days.
How are you able to underwrite the policies given their size?
Every Insurami deposit guarantee is backed by our insurance partner.
How do I use Insurami?
Once you create your account, you will be able to log into our website and use the Insurami platform to see if prospective tenants can afford the lease, check on your policies and properties, and manage any claims.
