Getting Landlord Approval for a Sublet

A legal sublet is usually one that is being done with the knowledge and consent of the landlord. Whether or not you decide to get your landlord's approval is up to you. Some landlords have a more hands-off management style and don't need to be looped into your activities as long as the rent continues to be paid on time each month. This is especially the case for shared sublets.

If you do decide to get your landlord's approval for your sublet then you should send them an application for your proposed subtenant and a signed sublet agreement.

You will need:

  • To verify the identity of your applicant
  • To verify the employment status
  • To present this information to your landlord in a way that makes it clear that it is verified
  • You may also need to securely capture and share the social security number of your applicant so that your landlord can run his own credit and background check on them

Both of these documents can be prepared on your behalf by the Flip platform. Simply accept an applicant on Flip to have an application prepared for you.
