Rent Out Space
Flip helps turn vacant space into occupied space. Leaseholders, property managers and owners can rent out rooms and apartments for flexible time periods, starting at one month.
Our platform makes it simple to find, screen, and accept qualified renters.
A sublet is a separate rental agreement between the original leaseholder and a new tenant who moves in temporarily, or who moves in with the original tenant and shares the rent. When you sublet you open yourself up to the same risks as a professional landlord, which is why it's important to choose a quality subtenant, stay protected legally and get paid rent.
For a sublet to be legal it often requires the approval of the landlord or property manager. Flip creates a sublet application for you, which include all of the information that you will need in order to get approval for a sublet.
Break or Assign a Lease
If you’re on a lease and you no longer want to be you can terminate it by paying a fee or assign it to someone else. Your assignee will take over responsibility for the remaining months of the lease. You can do this for part of a lease or for the entire lease.
Assignments always require the approval of a landlord or property manager.
Offer Flexible Leases
If you are a landlord or are managing rental properties, you can use Flip to keep your property rented out.
You can do this if you're managing inventory. For example, if you have a vacant unit in December and know that you could charge a higher rent if you brought it to market in June then you might want to find a tenant who wants a six month lease.
You might also have noticed that more and more people prefer to sign shorter leases or more flexible leases, and would in many cases even pay a premium for it. Use Flip to find and sign leases with these renters.
