Bringing No Deposit renting to the South East with flatfair

Here at flatfair, we are extremely excited to announce our latest partnership with Arun Estates, the largest independent estate agency in the South East.

This means that flatfair No Deposit will be on offer for tenants and landlords at Wards, Cubitt & West, Douglas Allen and Pittis branches who operate under the umbrella company.

A helping hand for their tenants

As the cost of living crisis continues to surge, finding 5 weeks’ rent for a deposit is becoming increasingly harder for many households. In the South East in particular, the region with the second highest average rents in the UK, a typical renter would need more than £1300 for a deposit.

That’s where we come in, because with flatfair No Deposit, Arun Estates can offer their tenants significantly lower move-in costs of just one weeks’ rent (+VAT), easing their cash flow at a time when household budgets are limited.

Jason Bunning, of Arun Estates, had this to say: “Caring for our customers is at the core of our business, and part of that is offering them as much choice as possible when it comes to renting. flatfair’s solution comes at a time when many are looking to save money wherever possible, and we have no doubt that our customers will appreciate having the option to use its No Deposit service.”

A fairer end of tenancy

But it isn’t just the move-in process where tenants will benefit, as flatfair No Deposit also helps renters to get a fair and simple end to their tenancy.

Just like checking out of a hotel, their tenants will easily be able to settle potential charges that they are responsible for on our slick online portal.

Doubling up landlords protection

Not only do their tenants benefit, but their landlords do too. They can now increase their protection up to 10 weeks, which is market-leading and double the amount they would get with a traditional deposit.

Plus, they also receive faster end of tenancy payouts for any tenant slip-ups, with flatfair’s dependable payment technology that we can offer.

Our partnership is a clear no-brainer for both parties, and we are excited to be working together and offering No Deposit to the South East.
