If you`re going home for the summer, co-op accommodation outside Waterloo, or simply moving in while you`ve signed a 12-month lease [which is more than you need], it can be financially difficult to keep your student/student home. Subletting your seat can eliminate these financial worries by taking over your lease for a while. Although sometimes you may have difficulty finding a subtenant who is willing to pay the full rent to cover your room, at least a good portion of your monthly rent will be paid by the new tenant. There are many sites you can use to promote your support, including UW Off-Campus Student Housing, Places4Students.com and Kijiji. You can also advertise on local newsletters or post on Facebook — really anywhere you think you might find the right person to sublet it. Once you`ve found interested people, interview them and ask many questions that share the requirements of your roommates. If someone doesn`t seem right, don`t be afraid to look at someone else. To help you find off-campus housing, Laurier has partnered with Places4Students.com, an off-campus website that specializes in providing students, schools and building owners in Waterloo and Brantford. Please note that Laurier does not inspect or inspect the houses, rooms or rental properties listed here, so make sure you make your own adequacy requests. Rent (accommodation costs) is indicated as price per day, week or month. Before you sign anything, make sure you understand the details of your lease or lease. Rental costs for off-campus accommodation can range from 600 to 1200 $US per month.
Factors that may influence price are distance from university, cleanliness, size, utilities, nearby amenities and whether the device is furnished or not. A furnished unit is usually more expensive than an unfurnished unit. We have expanded our list of partner schools to more than 180 campuses and added the following academic institutions to our service: Be sure to read your rental agreement carefully to see if it prevents you from subletting or not. If it is said that you cannot sublet, you should speak to your landlord, who must provide you with written proof of why it is not advisable to sublet. You also want to make sure that your roommates can sublet your room with you; If they all agree, it is a good idea to get their consent in writing, so if problems arise, you have documents to show that they agree.
