When you want to reserve an item or maybe even a certain location, you must pay a certain amount of money for that to happen. But before you pay the mutually agreed amount, the person in-charge has to first let you sign a holding deposit agreement form. Feel free to browse some examples of holding deposit agreement forms to get some visual ideas on how it typically looks like.

A Deposit Agreement is an assurance that you are serious with reserving the item or a rental property. In that case, a holding deposit has to take place so that it is rightfully reserved to you. Should you ever change your mind and back out, at least the dealer has the holding deposit money that you’ve paid as adequate compensation.

What is a Holding Deposit Agreement?

A holding deposit agreement is a form of agreement between a seller and a potential buyer where the potential buyer wants to put an item  or a certain property on hold from the seller. Financially speaking, this is more beneficial to the seller than to the potential buyer.

To make sure that the potential buyer is serious about purchasing the item or property that was reserved from the seller, a mutually agreed amount in the form of a holding deposit has to be paid by the potential buyer to the seller in order to reserve it for them.

See some sample Holding Deposit Agreement Forms below for reference.

How to Handle Tenant Holding Deposits?

Since a tenant’s holding deposit serves as security should they decide to proceed with purchasing the property, it is the responsibility of the landlord/estate agent to give out a security agreement form and to indicate the full detail of the terms and conditions.

Both the landlord/estate agent and the tenant should agree if the holding deposit is refundable or not, and the expiration of the holding deposit agreement form as to not result in any tension that results to litigation between the tenant and the landlord in the near future.

It is your right as a potential buyer to ask about every detail of the holding deposit agreement as much as you can to gather as much information to truly make a decision that you would be confident about.

Try to bring out as many hypothetical situations just as to make it clear for both you and the landlord/estate agent that there are instances that these situations would happen. And if it does occur, what should be the main course of action to take be.
