HOW IT WORKS
78% of tenants prefer flatfair to a regular deposit

So how does zero deposit renting work? With flatfair, renting is faster and more affordable. You’re still responsible for any damages and unpaid rent at the end of your tenancy, but with flatfair, you simply register your debit card and pay when you move out – a bit like when you leave a hotel.

*This is your maximum one-off membership fee you can split evenly between you and anyone else in the tenancy agreement (and in some cases, a discount might apply). Remember, flatfair lets you pay when you leave, and isn’t insurance – so you’ll still need to cover rent and damages when you leave.

Tenant FAQs

    • What if I’ve already moved in?

      Good news – you can still join flatfair at any time and get your original deposit back.

    • What does no deposit required mean?

      When you see no deposit required on a property listing, it means that instead of paying an expensive traditional security deposit, tenants can simply pay a small one-off flatfair membership fee for their tenancy costing just one week’s rent (+ VAT) split evenly between each tenant moving in.

    • What is the tenant fee ban?

      On June 1, 2019, the Tenant Fees Act was introduced into UK law, banning most letting fees, and caps tenancy deposits paid by tenants in the private rental sector in England.

      Luckily, flatfair membership is not subject to the Act, as our deposit alternative option is optional for tenants. It’s a one-off cost with no fees for renewing or extending a tenancy.

    • What does deposit-free renting mean?

      Deposit-free renting lets you secure your property without the need to pay a security deposit. With flatfair, you’re able to rent without a deposit and instead pay a one-off flatfair fee costing just one week’s rent (+VAT) per tenancy.

      That means you won’t be asking “how do I get my full deposit back?” at the end of your tenancy, you simply pay any damages when you leave – a bit like when you stay at a hotel. Any disputes you have are easily handled through our easy-to-use platform.
