flatfair is shaking up residential lettings by enabling tenants to secure their rental with just their debit card instead of paying an expensive upfront deposit.
With flatfair, tenants pay a small, once-off membership fee per tenancy (equally split between tenants), and simply settle any end of tenancy charges when they leave. Landlords beat the recently introduced cap on deposits and enjoy up to 12 weeks’ worth of protection against any damages or rent arrears, as well as free recovery for any additional charges. All is handled transparently through flatfair’s online platform where tenants and landlords may negotiate and settle end of tenancy charges, as well as having access to government-authorised independent dispute resolution in the case of a dispute.
flatfair is already available with thousands of units across the UK with some of the UK’s largest letting agents and landlords such as CBRE, Spicerhaart, Places for People, Greystar and Touchstone.
