Frequently Asked Questions

How does Paid2Lease make money?

We get paid a referral fee from the apartment owners or management companies when someone we refer to them rents an apartment. The referral fee that we are paid is based on a percentage of your first month’s rent.

How much cash back rebate will I get?

The cash back rebate amount depends on the referral fee paid to us by the apartment you lease at. Referral fees vary for all apartments and they can change them weekly. We give a cash back rebates up to $750.  Since the amounts vary so often we can’t always guarantee a certain amount. Please contact us if you are unsure about the cash back rebate for a particular apartment. You may need to be personally escorted to certain Apartments for a referral fee to be paid to us and a rebate paid to you. So if in doubt, please email or call!

Can I get a bigger cash back rebate if a Paid2Lease Agent escorts me to the property?

Yes, some apartment communities will pay a larger referral fee if we escort you on your first visit to view the apartment. Some apartment communities will not allow us to send you and will only pay a referral fee if we escort you on your first visit.

Can I get a cash back rebate on an apartment I saw advertised on Craigslist?

We work with hundreds of apartments and sometimes advertise those apartments on Craigslist. Any of the apartments that we advertise on Craigslist are eligible for the same cash back rebates we offer on our website.

If you see an apartment that is advertised on Craigslist by another Realtor/Agent or Apartment Locator, we may be able to offer a cash back rebate on it.

Contact us for more information.

Can I get a cash back rebate if I'm working with a different apartment locating service?

No, you can only qualify for a cash back rebate if you use Paid2Lease to find your apartment.

Can I get a cash back rebate if I move to an apartment managed by the same company as where I currently live?

It depends on the policies of the management company. Most apartments will not pay a referral fee if you transfer to another apartment community under the same management company. However, if you have already given your notice to move before applying at another apartment you will most likely be eligible for a cash back rebate. Contact us if you are unsure and we will let you know if you are eligible.

How long will it take for me to get my cash back rebate?

The rebate will be mailed (certified) to your new apartment address upon Paid2Lease receiving payment of referral fee by the Property (usually 4-8 weeks after you move-in).

What are the qualifications to rent an apartment?

Most apartment owners or management companies have similar qualifying criteria.

Qualification Criteria may include:

  • Employment/Income verification of 3x rental amount
  • Good rental history (no evictions, broken leases or foreclosures)
  • Criminal background (no felonies or violent misdemeanors)
  • Good credit (credit score of 550 and above)

Not all apartment background checks are as thorough.

Please contact us if you have concerns about qualifying for an apartment. We can send you the qualifying criteria for an apartment and work with you if you have any issues that might not be approved at most apartments.

Why did I receive a smaller cash back rebate amount than was listed on the website?

The cash back rebate amount listed for every apartment is an estimate of the actual rebate amount. The actual rebate amount may be more or less due to the actual rental amount of the apartment and the referral fee paid by the apartment community at the time you lease the apartment. We offer a cash back rebate of 25% of the referral fee paid to us by the apartment community.

If you switch to a different apartment with a lower rental amount before you move-in, then the apartment will pay a referral fee based on the rental amount of your new unit. We verify the rental amount and referral fee at an apartment at the time you lease and confirm again once you move in.

Apartments can also change their rental amounts and cash back rebate amounts without notice. We update the rental information on our website regularly, but please contact us for the most up to date information.

I don't have time to search for apartments on my own. Can one of your Agents help me find my new apartment?

Absolutely! Please contact us at 512-953-PAID so we can discuss all of your options. Don’t worry, you will still be eligible for a cash back rebate!
