You just moved across the country for a three-month work contract. Your clothes are neatly organized in your new closet, your comforter is on the bed, and your furnished apartment is perfect… almost. You have everything you need except peace and quiet, thanks to your noisy neighbors.
It’s not uncommon for a tenant to leave their lease or rent out their apartment to someone else, especially in temporary housing situations. You may hear the term “subletting” most often, but “reletting” is another concept you should familiarize yourself with, too.
There are plenty of sad truths in life. To name a few: you have to pay taxes, your beloved dog won’t live forever, and your apartment rent will go up, not down. While it’s important to accept these facts, it’s equally as important to keep an eye out for things that seem unfair.
So, you’re one of the blessed few people with a two-bedroom apartment, or maybe a one-bedroom apartment with a spare room! You might currently be using the space to store odds & ends, out-of-season clothes, or random furniture you nabbed from your parents.
“BRRR! It’s cold in here! There must be some Toros in the atmosphere!” Or maybe you just have some old apartment windows? Yes, we’re quoting Bring It On, but it is a fitting description of your drafty apartment.
