    • "I didn’t know much about flatfair when my tenants and I signed up. In our case, things went wrong and it turned out that I was massively fortunate that my tenants had signed to flatfair. They have been fantastic from start to finish and communicated with the tenants when things had completely broken down. It is an amazing idea and I am hugely grateful to them."

      Rachel, Landlord
    • "Since offering flatfair, we have received nothing but praise from our landlords who want to offer it on all their properties. Most of our landlords now say that they strongly recommend flatfair as it offers them the best protection, the properties fill quicker and they have happier tenants. "

      Neal, Agent
    • "flatfair is an extremely well organised company with an amazingly well laid out site which is very easy and clear to use. Any questions or queries that I had were answered promptly and I would recommend anyone to using their services. An absolute delight!"

      Brionne, Tenant
    • "You and your colleagues have been attentive and helpful at all times, I will definitely recommend flatfair due to the efficiency I have experienced. "

      Charlotte, Landlord
    • "I think it made my moving a lot less stressful. I had a very short time to move so being able to set everything up so fast really helped!"

      Jenny, Tenant
    • "I have had a great experience with flatfair so far. The process follows a normal 3rd party arbitration service if landlord and tenant don't agree - so it's fair all round."

      Partner FAQs

        • What is the no deposit option?

          A flatfair membership is the simple, safe and affordable alternative to a traditional tenancy deposit. Instead of an expensive upfront cost, tenants simply pay a small one-off membership fee per flatfair tenancy, which costs one week’s rent (+ VAT) split evenly between each tenant moving in.

          The end of tenancy process works a bit like a hotel – tenants simply pay any damages or rent arrears when you move out of the property, which are easily negotiated using our fair and impartial technology platform.

        • Why is flatfair better than an insurance product?

          Unlike other deposit alternatives, flatfair is NOT an insurance product. This is a big advantage for agents as there’s no risk of unknowingly mis-selling a financial product and incurring a hefty fine.

          It’s a big advantage for landlords too, because this means they won’t have to worry about whether an insurance company might try to avoid paying out or having to go through a nightmare claims process.

        • How much does it cost to join flatfair?

          For agents and landlords, joining flatfair is free. See our Help Centre for more information about the signup process.
