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.
