how do i sublet an apartment?

2 Replies

Hi, I'm an 18 year old student and i have an studio apartment already furnished on my hands right now. The thing is i don't know how to rent it to other people ( preferably students) because 5 minutes away from my studio apartment, there is a college nearby. i bought all the furnitures in the apartment and the contract is in my name. Is it possible to rent it to others making my own contracts ( in case my property gets damaged). If so, how do i make up the prices? Thank u.

 First you need to see if subletting is allowed on your lease.  If not, you could ask your landlord for permission.  If you then are allowed to sublet your apartment, you should advertise to other students at school on bulletin boards or the school's website, etc.  Craigslist should be your last resort.  But, since you rented it at a certain price, you should know what the going price is.

Thx a lot @sue kelly
