What do you take for a security deposit?

  • In the City of Chicago: Due to the complex rules governing security deposits in Chicago, we encourage owners to take a Non-Refundable Move in Fee of $400 per adult tenant.
  • In the Suburbs: We suggest a deposit equal to two months of rent to be held in a savings account separate from the operating bank account.
  • Pet Fees: We suggest a $250 per cat non-refundable pet fee and a $400 per dog non-refundable pet fee. We do not suggest allowing dogs in rental properties.
