How do you transfer an apartment lease to someone else?

Wondering how to transfer an apartment lease to someone else? Ok, it’s a hassle, but it can surely be done. First, you need to verify with your apartment complex or your landlord that the lease transfer or lease assignment is, in fact allowed. In most cases, yes. If so, then you just have to find a suitable tenant to take over the rest of your lease. Sounds easier than done? We thought so.

There are many free resources to utilize, where you can try to find someone to take over your lease, but keep in mind, sites like Craigslist will bring you many flaky leads, who do not have verifiable income or good credit for approval. Therefore, we do not recommend it, as it will be a waste of time.

However, we at Take Over Lease can certainly consult you and help you get it done very professionally.
