Powered by Movem

Leveraging open-banking technology, flatfair has partnered with Movem to provide a seamless and instant referencing experience

  • Step 1  

    Send out the invitations

    Agents send an invitation link to tenants. Once signed up to flatfair in the online portal, they'll be able to kick off the instant reference process.

  • Step 2  

    Complete the form

    Tenants complete the form in minutes by authorising their bank account with Movem. The system will then instantly verify their income and rent, where possible.

  • Step 3  

    Check in with the agent or landlord

    Movem processes the reference immediately and then submits results directly to the agent who will then decide whether or not to confirm the tenancy.

Secure credit checks

Movem integrates directly with credit reference agencies—exactly like traditional referencing companies—meaning you're in safe hands.

What’s checked

  • Addresses

    Movem verifies that the applicant’s current residential address and any recent previous addresses match official records.

  • Identity

    As part of the credit check, Movem checks the applicant's full name and date of birth against official records, including the electoral roll.

  • Adverse credit

    Movem obtains 6 years' worth of data on CCJs, bankruptcies, insolvencies and any other history of adverse credit, leaving you with peace of mind.

Transaction Analysis

Movem will categorise an applicant’s income and rent. Then will provide rich context, analysis and actionable insights.

  • Income analysis

    Verification of regular income being credited to your account each month including any bonuses etc

  • Rent analysis

    Verification of regular payments made to the landlord each month and accessing historical data on any missed/late rent payments

  • Affordability calculator

    Based on income, the calculation is made to predict how much the tenant can afford each month to cover rent payments.

Everyone's in the loop

Your tenants receive instant requests online and have access to real-time updates on their application through email notifications. This helps to keep all parties informed on the status of their checks and speeds up move-ins.

The results are in

Once referencing is completed, agents will receive a comprehensive report instantly - helping them decide whether or not to approve a tenant’s application before they've even left the office.

If approved by the agent, they're then able to move in.
Same day.


  • Decision scorecard

    The decision scorecard enables the agent to quickly come to a decision on the tenant's eligibility to move in.

  • Centralised reporting

    Reports can then be stored and analysed in the flatfair portal, or downloaded for future reference.

  • "It's a great alternative to a high security deposit while still giving the landlord some assurance. Makes moving much, much easier to manage and plan for. This needs to be accessible for all eligible renters across the country!"
