Frequently asked questions

flatfair is an invite-only scheme. Please email support@flatfair.co.uk or use our web chat to find out more.
For agents and landlords, it’s free! For tenants, we charge a one-off fee equal to the value of 1 week’s rent (excl. VAT) per household, replacing the need for an expensive tenancy deposit.
flatfair helps tenants and landlords settle end of tenancy claims quickly, fairly and securely, whilst protecting everyone through independent dispute resolution. flatfair is designed to achieve faster lettings, a reduction in disputes and greater recovery of residual losses leading to cost reduction, additional revenue, increased efficiency and an improvement of overall customer satisfaction.
To cover your flatfair administration cost, flatfair pays letting agents a referral bonus for successfully inviting tenants to flatfair.
Cutting-edge payment technology enables flatfair to pay out faster, leading to a quicker turnover and fewer voids. By providing upfront liquidity for any damages or rent arrears, we alleviate any hold-ups caused by ‘frozen’ (where tenants don’t respond) or ‘withheld’ (where ongoing litigation results in payout delays) deposits, keeping your landlords happy.
