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.

It’s all done online

The flatfair online platform helps you and your agents manage everything from move-ins to end of tenancy charges all under one roof.

  • "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."

    Thomas, Agent

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.
