oh goodness they bleeped out the word but t  lol kinda funny

I researched deposit/rental as...

I researched deposit/rental assistance there I didn't find anything called GAP.... But research it tell them you want a contact number for them and verify it! cuz if you give them a written lease before they actually pay you could run into problems! I DO KNOW there are organizations who help with rent and deposits! I have actually personally used one called UCAN here in Oregon they paid my full deposit and 2 months rent so I could get on my feet! So don't look down on it but DO verify and cover your **bleep**!

I am not familiar with the use...

I am not familiar with the use of GAP insurance for rental housing. GAP is basically insurance that would cover the difference between the actual value of something and the amount owed for it. Its usually for vehicles in situations where the car might depreciate faster than the loan is being paid off so you could owe $40k on a car that is worth $30k.  My hunch is a tenant insuring something is not a bad thing for the landlord, but I would get more info from him on exactly what he intends to do. As an aside you should have EVERYTHING in writing and signed when you lease a place no matter what.
