The leaseholder plan was purpose-built for anyone on a lease who doesn't want to be paying rent in two places at once. The most common reasons that people come to us with this problem are when their job situation changed and they can no longer comfortably afford their rent or need to relocate, they broke up with someone or would like to move in with someone on their own schedule, or they're buying a home.

Your landlord's policies
Figuring out how your landlord will respond to your request to leave early can be tough, especially since their response may vary based on the time of year. We suggest you leave this work to us - we've gotten approval for sublets and lease transfers from thousands of landlords across the country so we know just what to say. When you've made your account and added your address you will be prompted to share your landlord's contact information so that we can take care of this.
Negotiating with your landlord
Getting you out of your lease without upsetting your landlord mostly comes down to making them happy by getting them a new tenant. In some cases more negotiation will be required. For example, most states have laws in place that require landlords to cooperate (to varying degrees) with tenants who need to leave early, and landlords don't always know about these laws. We will use the right tools in our toolbox at the right time to make sure everyone ends up with a good outcome.
Marketing your unit
We know you're eager to move onto your next place. The tools that you'll get access to are the exact same marketing tools that landlords get access to - in other words, you'll get as much firepower for marketing your unit as the professionals.
Here are the steps:
Add a listing. Include photos, floorplans, the address and a few other details. The tools that you'll get access to are the exact same marketing tools that landlords get access to - in other words, you'll get as much firepower for marketing your unit as the professionals.
Let us know where prospective tenants will be able to find the keys, or if you're using self guided viewings then just hang our keybox from the door.
Now we're able to market, show and fill the unit with a replacement tenant while you focus on your next steps. All in, you should be able to leave within a few days of creating your listing.
