Leveraging Boost’s technology-driven platform, LeaseLock is providing flexible coverage tailored to the needs of multifamily property managers and owners.

“We are their insurance technology partner to help power their impressive growth to date and beyond. LeaseLock is truly cutting-edge in the insurtech space. We are excited to partner with them.”

LeaseLock said that renter will not get their money back unlike a security deposit; however, it claims that renters will save money as they can relocate more easily without worrying about saving up for their security deposit.
