Los Angeles is a city of dreams…and a city of renters. Unfortunately for these renters, dream cities often come with nightmare rent prices, and an overall higher cost of living. If you live in Los Angeles already, you may be familiar with how difficult it can be to find an affordable apartment.

This means renters should always be on the lookout for rent concessions and other ways to make living in LA less expensive. For example, Rhino’s security deposit insurance can lower the upfront cost of moving, making it easier for new and experienced L.A. renters to move into amazing apartments. 

Renters like Amanda Webster. Amanda runs a consulting agency with her sister and moved to LA to work with fashion brands. She was able to avoid paying an expensive deposit of $10000, by instead purchasing a Rhino insurance policy. Now, she pays a manageable, non-refundable monthly payment*. 

A graphic including a quote from a real Rhino renter advocate, Amanda Webster, "When I moved in, I had to buy everything for my apartment so it was already a large expense. Rhino made things much easier."

Here are some no-fee apartments that offer Rhino so you find your next no-fee, deposit-free home in LalaLand:
