Before you sublet always get permission from your

Agreement with your subletter and to take a security
deposit which can be held in case of damage to the apartment. When
subletting you are
still responsible to your landlord for the original lease and you also
can be held responsible for any problems created by the new tenant.
Make sure to inform your subletter about lease obligations and city

subletter can damage neighbor relationships and make your efforts to be
a good neighbor more difficult.
