What Is Guaranteed Rent

Guaranteed rent is a service offered to landlords by some property management companies, in which the company guarantees to pay the landlord a fixed rental income for a certain period of time, usually for the duration of a lease agreement, regardless of whether or not the property is occupied by tenants.

In other words, the landlord is assured of receiving a fixed income each month, even if the property is vacant or the tenants are unable to pay their rent. The property management company assumes the risk of any potential loss of income due to tenant defaults or vacancy periods, and takes responsibility for finding and managing tenants for the property.

The guaranteed rent service typically includes a range of property management tasks such as maintenance and repairs, property inspections, tenant vetting and referencing, and handling any tenant disputes or issues that may arise.

Guaranteed rent can provide landlords with greater financial security and peace of mind, as they can rely on a fixed income without having to worry about managing the property themselves or dealing with rental arrears or void periods.
