How flatfair works
Join flatfair and don’t pay a deposit
Instead of an expensive deposit, tenants pay atfair a small membership fee equal to the value of 1 week’s rent + VAT at the accommodation (split evenly between the household).
A fairer claims process through www.flatfair.co.uk
Your letting agent or landlord submits any proposed claims and evidence for your review through www.flatfair.co.uk after your tenancy has finished. You can counter any claims with alternative evidence until an agreement is reached. Should you or the landlord disagree about a claim, the claim will be resolved through Independent Dispute Resolution - following the same rules as the deposit schemes.
flatfair will only charge you for any lawful claims after your tenancy has finished.
Build your rental reputation
Stick to your rental obligations, build up a strong flatscore and benefit from discounts when moving into your next accommodation.
flatfair’s deposit-free scheme is also available to existing tenants who have a standard Tenancy Deposit at their current rented home.
