How Flip gets your landlord's approval

We want everyone who finds an apartment on Flip to have the safest, most-stress free experience possible. That means that the property manager or owner of the apartment should be aware that they are living there and have given written consent.

We work closely with landlords of the apartments that we manage and do not accept any applicants who wouldn't be approved either as subtenants or tenants.

If you're creating a listing yourself you may see information about your building's requirements after you've listed - that's because we've worked with your landlord before and know what you need to do. If you don't, you can ask for our support team's help in working with your landlord and we'll be happy to reach out to them for you and make sure you have all the information you need. Please note we're only able to offer this outreach service in NY, IL, CA, and TX.
