Is he insane? People with low or high credit scores will not benefit from this proposal. The landlord will, of course. People with low credit scores most likely won't have the extra money to pay the increased deposite. I don't understand people. Why do we have to keep giving our money away for the benefit of others? Heck, just because someone (with good or bad credit) breaks their lease agreement, doesn't mean the property owner will not be able to replace the rental with another tenant. Maybe some people don't care about the loss and just want out to move somewhere else. It sounds like this guy just wants people to stay rather than help those with lower credit scores. Most of us aren't fools...
