This bill amends the landlord/tenant code to permit the use of a surety bond in place of a security deposit. Instead of paying a refundable security deposit, a tenant may, if the landlord permits, purchase a nonrefundable “surety bond” for a percentage of the security deposit amount. The issuer of the surety bond would then be liable to the landlord in the event the tenant does not pay for any damages sustained by the landlord due to non-payment of rent, breach of lease, or damage to the rental property.
