If you wish to terminate your tenancy early, keep in mind that you remain responsible for the full length of the originally agreed term, or until someone is found to replace you. As per the agreement we have with the landlord, and as per our policy, any replacement is to be screened and signed off by Rent a Place. You are not allowed to sublet your room without our prior consent and without having the sublet co-sign the existing lease. Note that there are administrative fees of $190 on any lease transfer/sublet, due only at the end of the process. These fees are to cover the cost of advertising the room, screening and interviewing the applicant, and cleaning the room before the arrival of the new applicant. If you find a replacement through your own efforts, you are still required to direct the applicant to Rent a Place.
In addition to our marketing effort, Rent a Place can can also share the marketing material (photos, virtual tour) with you if you intend to advertise in parallel. As a side note, due to seasonality and its effect on demand and pricing, it might be advisable for you to advertise your room for less than the amount you are currently renting it for. For instance, the price point in January is traditionally 10% to 20% below September's. This will make your offer considerably more attractive and reduces your risk of not finding anyone. If you choose this alternative, you would be liable for the balance between your current rent and the amount for which the room is newly rented.
