Frequently asked questions

Whilst removing the need for expensive deposits that often overlap between tenancies, we also provide an easier, fairer way to pay for - or dispute - claims made by your landlord or letting agent.
flatfair membership costs 1 week of rent (exc. VAT) split between the household. You can ask your letting agent or landlord for more details.
No problem. Just ask your landlord or letting agent to convert your existing deposit into a flatfair membership and they’ll return the full amount.
Yes. When your tenancy ends, you’re fully liable to cover the cost of any damages or unpaid rent as outlined in your tenancy agreement, safe for wear and tear.
It happens! Simply pay at the end of your tenancy.
As 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.
Your letting agent or landlord will simply add the new tenant as a flatfair member - at no extra cost to you.
Your membership expires in line with your initial tenancy end date, and may be extended by your landlord or letting agent.
As with a deposit, your landlord has the opportunity to either discharge you from the obligations of the tenancy agreement or to raise a claim.
We certainly do. Tenants who stick to their rental obligations build up a strong flatscore and benefit from a range of future discounts, as well as the credibility. It’s kind of like mates’ rates for the people we trust.
If you agree with the claim, flatfair will charge all tenants equally. If you don’t agree, you can counter the claim and negotiate until an agreement is reached. We also enable you to dispute the claim and send it to Independent Dispute Resolution.
In the case of a disagreement between you and your landlord or letting agent, an independent government-authorised dispute resolution provider will decide on the case. Raising a dispute costs £100 + VAT, but we’ll refund this once your claim is found to have been made in good faith and of a scrupulous nature.
