Frequently asked questions

flatfair is the simple, safe and affordable alternative to tenancy deposits. Instead of an expensive deposit, tenants simply pay flatfair a small membership fee and cover the cost of any lawful claims at the end of their tenancy. flatfair helps tenants and landlords settle 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.
Without an expensive upfront deposit, flatfair gives landlords a competitive advantage: your properties become affordable and attractive to more tenants, reducing voids. We facilitate fast resolution of claims and disputes with your tenants - in fact, you may even sell us unpaid lawful claims up to a total value of 12 weeks’ rent (*though never more than 6 weeks’ rent arrears). If worse comes to worst, you can appoint flatfair to recover any additional sums at no further cost.
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), replacing the need for an expensive tenancy deposit.
