Simplifying the consumer rental journey

a unique mobile-based ecosystem

Our Story

InsureStreet™ was born out of the Founders own personal experience when his younger brother, Tariq Farooqui, a millennial had a real hard time finding that 6-8 weeks deposit. It breaks our heart to see millions of renter suffer; from having to pay for reference checks to finding that 6-8 week cash deposit each time you move.

InsureStreet™ aims to solve a growing deposit crisis for a Generation of Renters. Our mobile platform offers an alternative solution for people who are reluctant to put down 6-8 week deposit each time they rent. Through our app, users can access an on-demand insurance platform that generates real-time prices for deposit insurance and rewards good behaviour through lower risk premium.

The platform aims to unlock BILLIONS of pounds currently locked away as deposits across the U.K market and channel that capital back into U.K economy.

The next time a renter has to move house within U.K, they simply buy a new policy and move.
