Invite your tenant to sign up for Rhino when placing a tenant into a Rhino-enabled property instead of asking for a Security Deposit.
Tenants who are invited to use Rhino will receive an email prompting them to create an account on Rhino. Invited tenants will answer some questions and choose from the proffered policies. Policies for active Rhino tenants will be displayed on the Tenants Deposit Ledger page.
In your Rentec Direct account:
- Click Properties
- Click the Place New Tenant link
- Select the Use Rhino Security Deposit Insurance option to invite the Tenant to sign up for Rhino.
- Fill in their first and last name, an email address, and a lease-end date of at least six months from now.
Note: Security Deposit Insurance is not supported for Company tenants at this time.
- After you Place Tenant into the property, they will receive an email from Rhino (see screenshot below) to sign up for security deposit insurance from Rhino.

Until the Tenant has completed the sign up, the Security Deposit Insurance status will be listed as Pending. During this time the Deposit Ledger will display No Rhino Policy Set Up.
After a Tenant has accepted the Rhino invitation and completed their sign up with Rhino, Security Deposit Insurance will show as Enabled on the Tenant Profile Card.
