No Deposit Guarantee Scheme - Security & Protection for landlords 

We are now working with Flatfair to offer a no deposit option for tenants. This can replace a traditional tenancy deposit, giving landlords the same cover and protection as having a tenancy deposit in the bank, whilst making renting more affordable for tenants.

Tenants pay the equivalent of one week’s rent for a policy, which is non-refundable and provides you with the equivalent of a 10 week tenancy deposit (tenants can only pay a 5 week deposit on any assured shorthold tenancy under the current legislation). Tenants remain fully accountable for any damages or unpaid rents.

In the event of any financial loss or damage due to you, this is settled by the tenant or if they dispute the claim the evidence is sent for expert adjudication. If found in your favour, Flatfair will settle the claim with you and recover the costs from the tenants directly, along with any associated costs. Non-payment by the tenant at this stage may impact on the tenant's credit history.

Why would landlords choose a Flatfair no deposit scheme instead of a traditional deposit?

  • Speeds up the rental process
    Flatfair helps tenants reduce the upfront cost of renting, which can help speed up the process and reduce void periods.
  • Provides security & protection
    Flatfair provides 10 weeks cover, twice the amount of a traditional deposit.
  • Helps to attract a wider audience
    By giving you the potential to attract a wider audience of tenants, you can increase demand and reduce the time taken to rent.
  • Supports accountable tenants
    Tenants remain fully accountable for looking after your property and making rental payments, with us only making payment to you in the event of a fair claim at the end of the tenancy. Claim disputes are settled by The Dispute Service (TDS) and we will pay you within two working days.
  • Reduces paperwork & hassle
    A Flatfair no deposit policy is not a traditional deposit, so it doesn’t need to be registered with one of the deposit protection schemes, which can save landlords time and money.
