Rental guarantee deposit

Open or release your rental guarantee deposit

Almost everyone who wishes to rent a property has to provide a rental guarantee. Depositing the rental guarantee amount on a blocked savings account in your name is the most usual way. When you move out and leave the property in good conditions, the rental guarantee amount will be refunded to you.

I want to open an account for my rental guarantee deposit.

Currently, ING does not offer a digital solution to open an account for rental guarantee deposits. However, a free online solution is available via the Ministry of Finance website – MyMinFin – via the following link*:
