BEFORE YOU SUBLET

READ YOUR LEASE. Usually you will need your Landlord’s written consent to sublease. Contact your Landlord for information on the subleasing process.

CONSULT YOUR ROOMMATES. Most likely all of the original tenants are “jointly and severally liable” for the entire rent. If a subtenant does not pay rent, the remaining tenants are still legally responsible for the full rent.
