I've found an apartment I like. How do I get contact information for the leasing agent?

Simply log in or create your Rent7A.com account if you haven't already, purchase a Credit Package, and navigate to your desired listing details page. Just click the "Contact Leasing Agent" link on the right hand side to get everything you need. Obtaining the contact information for any listing costs just 1 Credit, and will provide you with all the contact information you need to apply and begin the approval process for your new apartment.

Are all Rent7A.com listings No Fee?

Yes. Every single listing we offer has been researched and verified to involve no brokers fee. However, sometimes building and landlord procedures change. If you find you cannot apply to one of our listings without a broker (which almost never happens), just email us and we'll refund your credit and remove the listing immediately.

Why can't I see the exact location of the apartment or the contact information?

Our database is designed to let you find apartments, and includes all information about size, price, building and apartment amenities, and any other information we have from the landlord. In order to access the contact information to apply for a unit, you must sign up for an account with Rent7A.com and purchase credits.

Credits are the currency of Rent7A.com. Simply purchase a Credit Package using our Google Checkout and your credit card, and click "Contact Leasing Agent" on your desired listings detail page. All of the information you will need will be displayed, and the property will be saved in your account under the "Searched Properties History" tab so you can find it easily later.

Do my credits expire?

No. Your credits never expire. They are saved in your account for you to use until depleted.

Can I view contact information for a listing again after I've already spent a credit on it?

Yes. You can view the contact information as many times as you like in 2 weeks, or until the listing has been removed from Rent7A.com. We remove listings once they have been rented and are no longer available.

Can Rent7A help me negotiate with a landlord?

Unfortunately, we can't. We simply provide a service to bring great tenants together with great apartments without the expense of a broker. Any questions you have about pricing, amenities, roommates or building procedures must be directed to the appropriate leasing agent.

Are there apartments currently available that aren't listed on Rent7A.com?

We do everything we can to keep our listings as current as possible. If you're moving further in the future and don't see anything with your desired move-in date, send us an email. We might have listings that have yet to be posted that fit your criteria. Also, keep checking the site as your move-in date gets closer to see what we've added!

What will I need to apply for an apartment?

Requirements vary from building to building, so this is really a question for the leasing agent for whichever listing you decide on. However, you can visit our NYC Rental Guide page for common requirements.
