Frequently asked questions.
Q1. Why should every tenant use flatfair?
flatfair is the simple and affordable alternative to tenancy deposits.
Q2. How much does it cost?
Ask your landlord or letting agent - the flatfair membership costs up to one week of rent per household (exc. VAT).
Q3. What if I have already paid my deposit?
No problem, just ask your landlord or letting agent to convert your existing deposit into flatfair and get your deposit back.
Q4. Am I liable for claims?
Yes, just like with a deposit, you are fully liable to pay for any damages or unpaid rent as outlined in the tenancy agreement - safe for wear and tear.
Q5. What happens if I accidently break something?
It happens... simply pay at the end of your tenancy.
Q6. What happens if I have flatmates?
Like with a deposit, you and your flatmates are each jointly and severally liable to treat the property with due care and pay your rent on time.
Q7. What happens if there is a change of sharers?
Simply ask your letting agent or landlord to update flatfair – it’s free.
Q8. When does my flatfair membership expire?
Your membership expires in line with your initial tenancy end date and may be extended through our online platform.
Q9. What happens at the end of my tenancy?
Like with a deposit, your landlord has the opportunity to either discharge you from your obligations or to raise a claim.
Q10. Do you reward good tenants?
Stick to your rental obligations and build up a strong flatScore - our mindful and loyal tenants will benefit from a range of future discounts. In other words: Good tenants are our mates and our mates get good rates ;).
Q11. What happens if my landlord submits a claim?
If you agree with the claim, flatfair charges all tenants equally.
Q12. What happens in case of disputes?
In case of disagreement between the parties, an independent government authorised dispute resolution provider will decide on the case - just like with the deposit schemes.
