Optimal für Mieter und Vermieter

Ideal for tenants and landlords

Normally, a deposit is due at the beginning of a tenancy. The rental deposit account is recommended for this purpose. You open a savings account for rental deposits and pledge it to your landlord as rental security. If the tenancy is terminated by both parties, you will receive the deposit back as soon as the landlord has given his approval.

NOTE: Please use Internet Explorer when filling out the application online.

Please note that, as of March 1, 2021, adjusted account conditions apply when opening a Rental deposit savings account and new forms must be used. From March 1, 2021, we will no longer accept any old forms received and they will be rejected.
