Short let tenants offered deposit alternative via new collaboration

Deposit alternative firm flatfair has teamed up with an accommodation service to supply short lets.

Users who find short lets through the Accommodation platform will now be given the chance to sign up to flatfair’s No Deposit Solution for a one-off cost of £100 + VAT, with guests agreeing to settle any charges at the end of the stay as if they were checking out of a hotel.

The partnership is trialling this deposit-free solution for tenants on business secondments or are renting between the purchase and sale of their homes.


Gary Wright, chief revenue officer at flatfair, comments: “We strongly believe that our technology solution offers a more streamlined and modern approach for short-term lets and we look forward to working with Accommodation to offer our solution to their tenants.”

And Accommodation’s lettings director, Howard Russell, adds: “In expanding our partnership with flatfair through this offering, we are increasing choice and providing solutions to occupants of flexible living arrangements that suit a wide range of situations.

“Our focus on world-class customer service through fantastic people and industry leading technology lies at the heart of everything we do, and I’m delighted that flatfair shares our vision and are supporting us as a next generation letting agency.”
