Qira Launches Full Security Deposit Management Services

NEW YORK CITY, <March 26, 2024> – Qira, a financial services platform offering renters and property managers a way to improve cash flow and avoid debt, announced their full security deposit management services today. As a part of our overall goal to give renters more financial options and decrease the upfront cost of moving, these items include groundbreaking security deposit alternative programs, security deposit payments and refunds processing with full escrow management, and now offering security deposit payment plan services.

“Qira is proud to provide comprehensive security deposit services that offload administrative tasks, ensure properties are compliant with state laws and significantly reduce properties financial risk,” said Revital Gadish, CEO of Qira. “We believe these programs greatly benefit our audience of property managers who often prefer to outsource the entire security deposit management to Qira and our renters who now have more alternatives to pay their deposit.”

When using Qira security deposit solutions, properties can offer their renters to choose a zero deposit program for a fee or pay the full security deposit either as a lump sum or in installments over the lease term. To minimize risk to the property or portfolio, no matter what the renter’s choice, Qira covers the full security deposit for the renter from day one and handles all operational aspects of the transaction with a fully automated and integrated security deposit refund when the renter moves out, reducing the burden on onsite teams. 

The security deposit payment plan services include:

  • Flexible installment payment plans of three, six, and 12 months.
  • Unlike a fee model, the renter is eligible to receive a full security deposit refund at the end of their lease.
  • Per state regulations, funds are held in escrow.
  • Fully automated security deposit system for renters and property managers handled exclusively by Qira. 
  • Popular alternative for single-family rental (SFR) portfolios. 

The security deposit management system allows Qira to manage the escrow accounts and ensure operators comply with state regulations (including interest-bearing account capabilities). This benefits properties or portfolios that do not offer a security deposit alternative (SDA) or payment programs to their renters. 

Qira’s security deposit alternative service allows renters to opt into paying a nominal fee, as low as $5 a month, rather than paying a bulky upfront security deposit. The property can offer this as an amenity to renters, while Qira covers the full security deposit amount. This is a low-risk solution for property managers to obtain their deposit amount and offer renters a $0 upfront move-in cost. 

“Our security deposit management technology is unique, and we have the only integrated payment plan solution on the market,” said Roy Doron, Chief Technology Officer at Qira. “This plan enhances our already-existing integration with leading property management software like Rent Manager, Resman, Yardi, Realpage, and more to maximize efficiency for both renters and property managers.”
