What’s the problem?

Millions of people rent their homes in the UK, but renting is still one of the most painful, unpredictable experiences that people can go through. On top of that, you have to pay a deposit, which can be quite expensive especially if you have to pay for a new deposit before you get your old one back.

We want to change the rental experience, making it less stressful and more affordable.

We’re here to help...

We’ve saved tenants over £10 million in upfront costs. How? By offering them a much cheaper alternative, a fast and forward thinking solution that ditches expensive deposits.

Here’s why tenants love flatfair

  • Benefit Icons Lower Upfront Costs Btr

    Lower upfront move-in costs

    Instead of a deposit, you’ll pay a one-off check-in fee which could be as little as £20 (+VAT), so check with your residence provider to see what you could save.

  • Benefit Icons Slipups No Deposit

    Only pay if there is problem

    When it’s time to move out, you’ll only pay if there’s a problem you’re responsible for.

  • Benefit Icons Check Out No Deposit

    Fast and easy check-out

    Checking out is fair and easy, with government-backed adjudicators on hand in case there’s a charge dispute*.

    *Tenants need to pay a £25 adjudication fee, which you’ll get back if the amount awarded by the adjudicator is less than the proposed charge.

  • Benefit Icons Smooth Moves No Deposit

    No sneaky fees

    There’s no recurring charges if you decide to renew your tenancy and stay in your home.

  • Testimonial Tenant Btr

    We recently used flatfair when moving and it made the whole transition from our previous property into our new one effortless and hassle-free. Avoiding the usual six [sic] week deposit was a real bonus! Every landlord should adopt flatfair.
