Rules for subletting are defined by your Lease Agreement and our company policies.Please consult your specific lease.Terms of subletting your unit are addressed on page two, item 12, of your Residential Lease and on your Rules and Regulations Addendum, item 2.
Page two states that you are “(t)o not assign this Agreement nor sublet the Premises or any part thereof without the prior written consent of Landlord.If Landlord permits an assignment or a sublease, such permission shall in no way relieve Tenant of Tenant’s liability under this Agreement.”The Rules and Regulations Addendum states “(a)ll subleases must be approved by the Landlord and our formal Sublet Agreement must be used.A sublet fee per subtenant will be assessed for processing applications, obtaining consent of roommates, lease and sub-lease review, and record keeping.This fee is due and payable at the time of application.Sub-tenant(s) will be bound by the Sublet Agreement and all terms of the original rental agreement and addenda.”
