How it works

How does our no deposit rental scheme work?

Tenants secure a property by registering their debit card. Then when it’s time for them to move out, landlords get up to 12 weeks worth of protection for any damages or rent arrears – double the amount of a traditional deposit scheme.

Landlord FAQs

    • Do tenants have to pay a deposit?

      Tenants don’t pay a traditional deposit when renting with flatfair, instead, it’s a one-off membership fee of one week’s rent (+VAT). With flatfair, landlords get more protection than with a regular deposit scheme (up to 12 weeks of protection for any end of tenancy damages and free recovery for any additional charges).

    • What is deposit-free renting?

      Instead of an expensive upfront deposit, flatfair offers a deposit-free alternative allowing tenants to pay a small one-off membership fee per tenancy costing one week’s rent (+VAT), which can be split evenly across the household.

      flatfair helps tenants and landlords settle end of tenancy charges quickly, fairly and securely, whilst protecting everyone through Independent Dispute Resolution. This results in faster lettings, a reduction in disputes, and greater recovery of residual losses.

    • Do landlords have to use a deposit scheme?

      Landlords aren’t under any obligation to use a traditional deposit scheme. With flatfair, cutting-edge technology means flatfair pays out faster, giving landlords more protection than ever before. By providing upfront liquidity for any damages or rent arrears, we reduce hold-ups caused by frozen (non-responsive tenants) or withheld (ongoing litigation resulting in payout delays) deposits, helping landlords stay in pocket.

    • How do I become a no deposit landlord?

      That’s easy, just sign up to flatfair and we’ll take it from there.
