Freeport, ME ApartmentsCommunity ForumDo I need to inform my landlord
Do I need to inform my landlord. Hey all- I rent a two bedroom apartment in Freeport. I'm currently using one of the bedrooms as a craft room. There has been some changes at work, and I'm working less hours. I was thinking about taking on a roommate to help out with the bills. Do I need to inform my landlord. about this?
If you plan on renting out a room in your apartment, then yes you should speak to your landlord. It's not your property, after all. I believe that your roommate would have to sign a lease with the landlord, like you did. You also might need to revise your lease with the landlord.
Make sure you speak to them before you go out and find a roommate, they might not be okay with it. Best wishes.
