Sub-Letting

12 posts in this topic

I know it is not legal in the UK to sub-let a room in a rented property but we all know it goes on.

Any info, which sites to use to find flatmates?

Anyone got any experience in this anyway?

At uni we sub let out a spare room so we all pay 170 p/m instead of 250.

Best way to find it is probably gumtree or something.

I thinkthe big gripe landlords have is when you yourself profit from the sub letting.

Yeah, I rented a sub-let in Nottingham about 5 years ago.

If you are a tenant in a sub-let situation you have no rights, remember that. When I got there it was some indian guy and his father. There were used earbuds on the floor, rubbish everywhere and the flat was a mess. I cleaned it up, which took about 8 hours, and deducted 50 quid from the rent, thought that was pretty fair. They didn't argue.

Try to find out how much rent they are paying and offer less obviously. Make sure that the internet, heating, electricity are connected and being paid for. As you aren't a tenant you wont be able to have this stuff installed, or if you do have it installed youll be tied into a contract.

Funilly enough I found the place on facebook...

You can sublet if your LL agrees. Just remember youre liable for the rent in any void periods
