Landing a sublet in NYC can be a lifesaver for those looking for the immediacy, flexibility and a move-in ready set-up that comes with short-term rentals. Those in the market for a legal NYC sublet, a.k.a. the sublessee, can rent for a defined period of time from a sublessor, otherwise known as the original tenant. Another scenario is that you, as the sublessee, take over the remainder of the sublessor’s original lease and have your spot saved when it comes to drafting a new lease with the landlord. - The term ‘sublet’ can also just be short-hand for any form of short-term lease that doesn’t lock you into a year-long rental contract.

The benefits? The convenience of a short-term sublet in New York offers you the flexibility to pivot with life’s twists & turns. No more lease negotiations, double rent payments, hiring movers or investing in buying costly new furniture. Not being locked into a yearly lease in a specific neighborhood of New York means that you can relocate easily as dictated by a project timeline, new job, academic year or neighborhood envy.

How to find a furnished NYC sublet

Long left to NYC sublet-focused Facebook groups, lease break marketplaces and Craigslist ads, the search for a furnished NYC sublet has been a strenuous endeavor with imperfect housing options -- dated furniture, incongruent lease dates, & far-out locations among other headaches. On the other hand, others have found sometimes illegal and certainly costly sublets in NYC through Airbnb where nightly rates easily match the price of a Manhattan hotel.
