Luckily for you, Rez-One allows subletting and while we can`t guarantee you`ll find a subtenant, we`ll help you in every way. Rez-One will usually try to keep a waiting list of potential tenants, which is a good place to start and can make advertising superfluous. Here are some tips on what you need to do to make a sublease contract with Rez-One: It is almost impossible to find a place that allows a short-term rental for people who, due to conditions of cooperation, work, a free semester, travel plans, etc., have to move in and move permanently in their apartment. Finding a suitable place for a 4 or 8 month semester is difficult and an added stress if you should focus your time on your studies and work. Many students choose to sign a 12-month lease with sublease plans during the months they don`t use it. This task can be a challenge, as you not only need to find a subtenant to take your place, but also find someone reliable and responsible. Another problem with subletting is that you have to constantly move your belongings in and out of the room, which takes a lot of time. Once you have found a subtenant, you design a contract containing details such as the duration of the sublet, contact details, monthly rent, number of people living in the apartment/house, maintenance needs, etc. Make sure that you and the tenant are sublet and signing the contract.
Keep the original and make copies for the subtenant and your landlord. Make sure that you also deposit in your contract a deposit that you can use in case of repair or maintenance necessary during the subletting of your place. You`ll also find subletts online or ask your landlord for recommendations. There are many websites where you can promote your subletting, including UW Off-Campus Student Housing, Places4Students.com and Kijiji. You can also advertise on local billboards or post on Facebook – really anywhere you think you can find the right person to sublet. Once you`ve found interested people, interview them and ask plenty of questions that share those of your roommates and your requirements. If someone doesn`t seem to be fair, you`re not afraid to consider someone else. Be sure to read your lease carefully to determine whether or not it prevents you from subletting. If it is said that you cannot sublet, you should talk to your landlord, who must provide you with written proof of why it is not advisable for you to sublet.
You also want to make sure your roommates agree to sublet your room. If they all agree, it`s a good idea to get their written permission so that, if there is a problem, you have documents to show that they agreed. . . .
