Security Deposits – How much do you require from a new tenant?

We typically require a security deposit that is equal to one month’s rent.  This amount can vary depending on customary security deposits being charged on the open market for specific areas or communities in the Tampa Bay area.  Some applicants will be required to pay a higher security deposit based upon their specific credit background.  Coming Soon:  A detailed breakdown of our Applicant Selection Criteria.
