How it works


Go deposit-free

Once Termwise is enabled, eligible new residents can opt in from their Findigs dashboard. The plan is activated when the lease begins.


Coverage kicks in

The property is protected against losses by an insurance plan. Residents cover the plan's administrative fee each month.


Move-out stays simple

As always, residents are responsible for damage beyond normal wear and tear. But this time, there's no refund to worry about.

Deposit freedom made seamless

Frequently asked questions
I'm a renter. How do I start using Termwise?

If your property manager offers Termwise, and you meet the Termwise eligibility criteria, you’ll see another step in your dashboard after approval. Here, you'll be able to choose between a traditional security deposit and a Termwise plan—we'll automatically notify the property of your selection. If you aren't sure whether Termwise is available, you can ask your property manager using the Findigs chat function or by contacting them directly.

Who covers the cost of damage?

Residents are always responsible for damage beyond reasonable wear and tear. Insurance coverage provides protection for the property manager in case these damages are not paid for in a timely fashion.

Can I switch from a regular security deposit to Termwise?

Yes, if the property manager has enabled Termwise as an option, eligible residents may switch from a regular deposit to a Termwise plan by getting in touch with their property manager.

What are security deposit alternatives?

Security deposit alternatives (or “SDAs”) are financial products that function in place of the traditional deposit transaction. SDAs come in many forms, but whether it’s a bond, installment plan, or insurance policy, they exist to offer upfront affordability and financial flexibility to renters, and reduce risk for the property.

I’m a property manager. How do I offer Termwise to my residents?
