Contact Your Agent ASAP
In order for us to provide you the best service it's important that you make contact with your UMoveFree agent as early in search process as possible. Many properties pre-lease 60 days in advance. Contact us even before that point and we'll follow up when it's time to start looking. Can we handle a last minute apartment search? Certainly, but giving us as much advanced notice as possible makes our service even better!
Always Contact Us Prior to Visiting a Community
Many of the apartment communities require us to pre-register you prior to you visiting or calling them. Contact your UMoveFree agent prior to visiting any apartment communities so we can fulfill all pre-registration requirements. This will ensure you get your Free Move or Cash Rebate.
List UMoveFree Properly
When visiting apartments, tell the leasing staff you found the property using UMoveFree's service. List "UMoveFree" and your agent's name as your referral source on all guest cards and rental applications. This must occur to provide your free move or rebate. Review the following page for more information on listing UMoveFree properly.
