Disclaimer and Terms of Service
Sigma Relocation Group, LLC DBA UMoveFree.com and UMoveFree Apartment Locators ("UMoveFree," "we," or "us") are committed to making your use of our services as comfortable as possible. UMoveFree is a full-service apartment locating firm owned and operated by Texas licensed real estate agents. UMoveFree is not a moving company. Our clients are provided free apartment finding assistance from one of our licensed apartment locators. UMoveFree receives a referral fee if our client leases at a participating apartment community. Unlike most apartment locators, UMoveFree uses a portion of this referral fee to provide a rebate or move to our client.
The following terms and conditions, together with any documents they expressly incorporate by reference (collectively, "Terms of Service") govern your access to and use of our websites that display or link to these Terms of Service (including UMoveFree.com) (collectively, the "Website"), including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through this Website, whether as a guest or a registered user.
UMoveFree reserves the right to update or modify these Terms of Service at any time without prior notice. Your continued use of the Website after the effective date of any changes is deemed acceptance of the revised Terms of Service. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms of Service each time you visit the Website.

- Rental rates below $1,200 are eligible for a $100 rebate or $100 move credit.
- Your rental rate will be based on the effective average rent after specials.
- In the event a participating community's referral fee falls below our minimum requirements, UMoveFree reserves the right to offer a reduced rebate or a reduced free move offer. Referral fees for individual properties can change without notice.

- You must lease at a community found on our website, via our online apartment-locating search tool, or at a community referred to you by one of our licensed agents.

- All Rebate requests must be submitted via our Online Rebate Request process within 60 days of your lease start date.
- All Move requests must be submitted via our Online Move Request process within 60 days of your lease start date.

Non-Payment By Property
If for any reason a property decides not to pay our referral commission, this will constitute a retraction of our free move/rebate offer.
