Sublet Information

At U District Housing, we understand that you may need to sublet your unit.  We certainly do not want to be the reason you can't study abroad, or participate in the opportunity of a lifetime!  The good news is you can in fact sublet your unit.  

First, you did in fact sign a lease agreement, so if you simply vacated without finding a sub-letter before the end of your term, you would be breaking your lease which has both a monetary penalty as stated in the lease, and you remain responsible for payments due on the remainder of your lease.

  1. You can in fact sublet your unit and we grant permission to do so.
  2. You remain fully responsible and bound by your lease agreement until the sublet agreement is signed.
  3. Have the new tenant fill out an application and pay the application fee.  (Download Here: Tenant Application - PDF File)
  4. Complete the sublet agreement for the new tenant, and then have it signed by the sub-letter as well.  (Download Here: Sublet Agreement - PDF File)
  5. Once done, send both to us so we can review and sign, and pay any sublet fees due
  6. We will return a copy of the fully signed agreement to you and your sub-letter.
  7. You are 100% responsible for key exchange, etc.  We are not able to assist with showing or move-in of your sub-letter.

Also note the following important information:

  • You are responsible for conducting the showing of your unit to an interested sub-letter.
  • You have to be in position to hand off the keys to the new tenants and make the arrangements as stated above.
  • Deposit and last month rent refund will occur only after the new tenant has paid the deposit and last month rent to us, and we have two weeks to return it to you based on RCW.  Checks are processed twice monthly.  (Note, you can also arrange for the sub-letter to pay you directly, both the deposit and last month’s rent, and we keep your deposit on file.)
  • Until we have funds from your sub-letter, all future rent remain fully due at this time. 
  • If you are in a group living situation (i.e., rooming house or Upstairs / Downstairs Group Pod), you must obtain approval of all other residents that they are OK with your sub-letter taking over your lease.  Please have each member send us an email confirming their acceptance.
