My girlfriend and I are thinking of re-signing a twelve-month lease, but we know we don't want to stay for the entire lease. How likely will we be able to sublet our Long Island City apartment, just across the river from Manhattan? [more inside]
I live in Newark, NJ. It recently occurred to me that the Super Bowl is happening very close to me very soon, and my roommate and I are considering the possibility of renting out our apartment to people looking for housing. We haven't even gotten as far as discussing this with our landlord, so it's not terribly serious at this point. But what are logistical things we might not be considering in terms of this? Has anyone done this in the past? What are good ways to find non-shady people to stay in my apartment?
Looking for help on becoming a good, legal, and happy subletter in Seattle. I recently bought my own home and am considering renting out the front-side bedroom. I'd like help knowing the right legal/tax steps to take, a good idea of price range, as well as precautions and things to avoid (extreme verbosity inside). [more inside]
My friend, renting a room in a house, has found that the people he was renting from didn't actually own the house. He came home to find an eviction notice on his door and the locks changed. The fake landlords have moved all of their stuff out, changed their phone number, and are gone without a trace. Now my friend can't get to his stuff. [more inside]
We're subletting, and our landlord is selling. Do we have any rights in this process? [more inside]
My boyfriend and I moved into an apartment with a classmate of his almost 2 years ago. We found a place in Park Slope, Brooklyn, which is notoriously expensive but which we were able to all afford by splitting the rent three ways. Our room was really big, with room for both our desks and a bed. His room is about half the size but he also got the whole hall closet. Now that my boyfriend and I have broken up and he's moved out, we have a little problem. [more inside]
Appartment management companies have rediculously high credit requirements in Los Angeles. Is it legal for my mother to rent an appartment and for me and my roommate to just live there and pay rent? My mother would not be living there and the managment company probably wouldnt know. If this is not legal, what is the legal action that the management copany can take? This managment company does not accept co-signors. Please help!
Any advice for being the letter in a sublet? (More inside, naturally) [more inside]
