LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LeaseLock, a lease insurance technology provider for the rental housing industry, announced it has exceeded $9 billion in leases insured.

LeaseLock, the only insurance-based security deposit replacement for rental housing, has experienced accelerated growth as owners and operators focus on ESG initiatives and preventing NOI loss. LeaseLock's AI-powered risk platform, LeaseLock Shield™, optimizes coverage for each property using millions of units of underwriting history. LeaseLock properties are eliminating the bad debt created by deposits while offering greater access to housing for renters.

"Traditional security deposits perpetuate an outdated industry model that serves neither the renter nor the owner/operator," said LeaseLock President Ed Wolff. "LeaseLock's continually expanding footprint is a testament to its results for all constituents in rental housing, by providing a proven method to prevent avoidable NOI loss while accommodating renter preference and reducing operational burden. $9 billion in leases insured is just the latest benchmark as we deploy smarter risk prevention industrywide."

LeaseLock broadens the prospective resident pool by paving the way for qualified renters to avoid sizable deposits. Coupled with LeaseLock's ability to absorb resident account balances with expedited claims, handling bad debt is becoming a thing of the past for LeaseLock clients.

With LeaseLock, claims are automatically initiated through the native operating software at move-out, accelerating claims payouts — most of which are delivered within 48 hours. The industry's need to offer greater access to housing for renters while offsetting the risk of lost income has contributed to more renters and operators choosing LeaseLock Zero Deposit.

"Deposits have cost the industry billions of dollars in preventable NOI loss," explained LeaseLock CEO Janine Steiner Jovanovic. "They are an impediment to leasing, a failed method for offsetting bad debt, and result in damaging lawsuits and settlements. Providing greater access to housing and preserving NOI are the industry's top priorities and LeaseLock is the answer. LeaseLock is the only program available for rental housing that can deliver these essential benefits for both renters and investors."

Other industry leading partnerships include Quarterra, Goodman Real Estate, Highmark Residential, Rangewater Real Estate, ColRich, Western Wealth Communities, and Woodfield.
