For the rental of real estate, a requirement that you can not escape is the question of bail. It is a guarantee to the landlord that the rent will be paid in full and up-to-date. To this day, the most commonly used type of bail is the guarantor. However, real estate companies have offered tenants other options that facilitate the leasing process. Get to know today, what are the types of bail and how each one works.
Bail by means of a guarantor is still the most used at the time of renting a property. But how does it work?
Well, in this type of guarantee, you will need a second person who will serve as co-responsible for the payment of the rent. In this case, the guarantor must own a repossessed property and present the supporting documents during the lease process. Generally, it is required that the property of the guarantor is located in the same city in which the new property will be rented.
If at any time the lessee becomes defaulted on the rental payment, the guarantor is responsible for such debt, receiving a legal action if he fails to meet the expenses.
This is the type of bail most advantageous, financially, for the lessee, because it does not generate extra expenses (as we will see in the following topics). The hardest thing is to find a person who agrees to become a guarantor and who has the necessary requirements.
In this type of guarantee, the lessee hires the service with some insurer. The value of the insurance can reach up to 3% of the annual value of the rent and the contract needs to be renewed annually.
As there are several types of coverages, before you hire the insurance, talk to the real estate agent or landlord to see if the type of contract you want to close is accepted by them.
This is the second type of guarantee most wanted and one of the safest for the lessor since, in case of default, the payment of the rent is the responsibility of the insurer and is done quickly, not requiring legal proceedings.
In the security deposit, the lessee deposits the equivalent of three months’ rent to the lessor. If, at the end of the contract, there is no default on the part of the tenant, the amount is returned in full to the tenant.
The advantage of this type of bail is that there is no need to resort to a third party (insurer or guarantor). However, it will be necessary to disburse the amount of the bond at a single time.
In this case, the lessee buys a capitalization security as security for the rent. At the end of the contract, if there are no debts, the tenant can withdraw the amount with the monetary corrections. Otherwise, the value is taken out by the owner of the property.
