Hi Chicago 🐠 - my apartment lease ended and I’m looking for a new place. I’m also hunting for jobs on the west coast so I may need to move before my new lease finishes. Prop agent says...contd.

If you’re renting in a professionally managed building you should be ok subletting. They’ll run their normal checks like they would any new renter but there’ll almost always be someone that needs a short term lease out there. Did this when I lived in one of those high rises in River North and needed to leave after I bought a place.

...it’s unlikely that most landlords will allow me to sublet my new place. So if I need to leave earlier, what are my options? I know I could take a <12 mo lease and pony up the higher rent, but wanted to see if there were other options too. Thanks!

You should check the Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance. Not sure they can actually forbid you from subletting, especially if you find a suitable tenant for them. http://www.amlegal.com/nxt/gateway.dll/Illinois/chicago_il/title5housingandeconomicdevelopment/chapter5-12residentiallandlordsandtenant?f=templates$fn=default.htm$3.0$vid=amlegal:chicago_il

You should take the max lease term and sublet

The standard Chicago lease is that a reasonable sublet cannot be refused, but it’s also a tricky situation.

Move to a professionally managed rental property; they tend to have clear sublet policies. Consider living near local college campuses. Nearby landlords and property managers are used to tenants who sublet, leave during the summer or have semesters abroad, so they may be more flexible.

A2 is correct. Chicago‘s laws are quite tenant friendly. Perhaps you can go month-to-month if you don’t want to sign a new lease. Usually, that means higher rent and your landlord has a right to decline.

I’m subleasing my one bedroom in Edgewater until end of July if you are interested!

Interested in the Edgewater apt. Would mid July through mid Aug be an option?

You can almost always sublet an apartment. I sublet my last place with no issues. Many landlords don’t mind as long as the incoming tenant can pass a credit check.

I got painfully dumped by someone I was sure was the one 3 months ago.

I’ve finally stopped thinking about him and I feel like I’m a brand new version of myself
