What is Flip Instant?

Flip Instant guarantees that you'll get out of your lease within thirty days. Wondering how we manage that? It's simple. While you pack your bags, we find a great tenant and get them living in your apartment with your landlord’s consent.

There's no confusing fine print, we swear, but you might be wondering about some of these details:

Communication with your landlord
The takeover agreement
Move outs & security deposits
Tenant selection


As of early 2019, Flip Instant is only available in New York City for entire studio and one bedroom apartments. We're unable to accept individual rooms.

Communication with your landlord

If you haven't yet brought up your departure to your landlord and you aren't sure what they'll say, it's almost always better to let us do the talking. We've gotten lots of sublets approved by all different types of landlords, and we know just how to remove risk from the equation.

One of the first things we'll do after you purchase Flip Instant is reach out to your landlord to make sure they are okay with your apartment being marketed by Flip. Don't worry, we'll always keep you on copy.

Our takeover agreement

After you purchase Flip Instant you'll sign a simple legal agreement that lays out our terms:

  • We will pay your rent starting in 30 days
  • We can represent you and your interests for any relevant issues relating to your lease
  • We'll need access to your apartment up to eight hour per day to clean, photograph, or coordinate viewings

Move out and security deposit

You can move out right away or wait the full thirty days. We'll send you a guide explaining what to do before you leave to make sure you get your deposit back from the landlord at the end of the lease.

Tenant selection

We'll choose the most qualified replacement tenant who applies, and who your landlord is sure to accept. This means they have no criminal or eviction history and earn enough income to cover the monthly rent.
