What is an online rental guarantee on garantie.be ?
It is now possible to obtain a rental guarantee online. The rental guarantee contract is taken out on the Internet and the process is 100% digital.
The tenant takes out his surety bond online with the financial company GARANTIR (editor of the website garantie.be). In the event that the GARANTIR company agrees to stand surety, it sends the rental surety certificate to the lessor by email.
The online rental deposit contract subscription process is done entirely on the Internet. The tenant can follow the progress of his deposit request in his customer account area on garantie.be.
How does an online rental guarantee work?
The rental guarantee subscribed online works in the same way as a rental guarantee set up in a bank branch. The fact of taking out the guarantee online on the Internet does not change the basic rules of operation.
The guarantee commitment towards the lessor can only be terminated with the agreement of the lessor.
The tenant does not block funds to sign the lease contract, we guarantee the amount and we charge him an annual fee for our bond. The tenant does not replenish the amount, he just pays the surety fees every year.
What is the amount of the surety fees requested by garantie.be?
The GARANTIR company stands surety for the financial commitments of the lease on behalf of the tenant. The amount of the surety fee is proportional to the amount of the rental guarantee: The annual deposit fee represents 6% of the amount of the rental guarantee, with a minimum amount of € 96 per year.
For example : For a rental guarantee of 2,000 €, the tenant will pay 10 € per month of surety costs (in annual payment) so that the lessor is guaranteed for his solvency up to 2,000 €. The tenant can cancel the deposit at any time by blocking the € 2,000 rental guarantee with a bank and obtaining the agreement of the lessor.

As part of an online rental guarantee taken out on garantie.be, the tenant does not pay the amount of the rental guarantee. The GARANTIR company (financial guarantee company) guarantees the tenant to the lessor without the tenant blocking the guarantee funds of the rental lease contract. On the other hand, the tenant pays each year financial costs linked to the existence of this rental surety.
