Short-term room renting

Hello,

I have just rent an apartment and I was thinking of letting one of the rooms for a short period of time (2-3 months). I don't want to change my initial contract ofthe apartment and I, myself, want to choose who is going to stay at my apartment.

Is there any specific procedure I should follow or any formal document I should consider? Or can I just agree with the flatmate orally?

Do you have any experience of letting or renting a room?

Thank you for your feedback!

I recommend that you read your contract to see if it specifies the number of persons renting the apartment. It usually does. If you want to have another person live there with you, you need to advise management. Another person living there changes the rental conditions.

... and don't assume you can "get away with it" for a few months -- neighbours can be unbelievably nosy and act like KBG informers! Personal experience ...

Re: Short-term room renting

Hello,

Thank you very much for your answers. So, from what I understood, I should ask the management company for that.

Are they going to give me some kind of contracts for the other tenants to sign once they move into my apartment? So, are you suggesting that the agreement is made between the management and the new tenants and not between me and the other flatmates?

Thanks again,
Magdalini

I did rent out one room for 3 months, and another one for 10.
Back then I just asked the landlord if I could do that and that was it.
Common sense should be the rule I guess.
