Rent security loan – a loan for paying a rent security deposit

When you are moving to a rental flat, you must almost always pay a rent security deposit in advance to the landlord as a pledge. A loan may be a handy and necessary means of financing costs related to a rental flat, as the rent security deposit may be up to an amount equalling three months’ rent.

Loan for a rent security deposit without security

You can apply for Nordea FlexiCredit as a loan for paying a rent security deposit. You can also use the credit to finance other costs related to your removal, such as acquisitions of new furniture, renovation costs or removal services.

You can get a loan from 2,000 euros up to 50,000 euros. As the name suggests, FlexiCredit is a flexible and handy loan product, which may be a solution for you when you are planning to move to a rental home. 

  • You can apply for a loan for a rent security deposit in Nordea Netbank or Nordea Mobile.
  • The money is paid to your account after your loan application has been approved (Mon–Sun 7.00–22.30).
  • Credit can be granted to one or jointly to two applicants aged 18 or older.
  • The repayment schedule is flexible and the loan period can be adjusted to your repayment capacity.
  • The repayment will be made monthly in equal payments, but you can also repay the entire loan in one go if you so prefer.
  • There is an option for two instalment-free months per year.

Standard European Consumer Credit Information

To make comparing easier, the applicant has the right to receive the key information on the credit on a Standard European Consumer Credit Information form before signing the credit agreement. The information on the form may be calculated with the details given by the customer or on typical values. The form on this page is calculated with typical values, which means that a typical euro amount for this credit type is applied.

The form specifies the lender's contact information, the main features of the credit product, the costs, other important legal aspects and, if needed, the additional information required for distance selling. The information on the form may be binding or unbinding on the lender. A binding form requires a positive credit decision.
