London-based property startups Fronted and Canopy have partnered to allow renters to transfer their security deposit from one property to another, offering a solution to one of the biggest challenges renters face. Prior to the collaboration, tenants were required to post a new security deposit before they could receive a refund of their previous security deposit.
