Local Subletting Laws

A legal sublet generally means that the landlord has consented to it. In some jurisdictions you do not need to get landlord consent if your lease does not require it.


In Florida, the lease must say that you are prohibited from subletting in order for the landlord to bar you from doing so. If your lease does not prohibit subleasing, you may sublet your apartment.

Assuming your lease does not bar subletting, you should request landlord approval for the sublet with as much detail as possible.
