What’s the problem?

Traditional deposits are slow and a thing of the past. They offer just five weeks worth of protection and around two month waiting time to release cash for end of tenancy settlements.

We’re here to help

Mashroom replaces traditional deposits with a secure, deposit replacement solution. We offer 12 week’s worth of protection, that’s more than double than a traditional deposit provides.
