Removing a Resident

Removing a resident from a lease without locating a suitable replacement increases the risk for the property owner, by reducing the overall earned income for the tenancy.

For this reason Sleep Sound has specific rules about removing someone from the lease.

If a resident would like to be removed from the lease you may do so under the following conditions.

  1. The remaining residents must be able to qualify financially for the property. This is verified through updated paystubs provided by you to your Property Manager.
  2. The remaining resident must locate a new resident who must be screened and together they must qualify financially before the departing resident will be released from the lease.
  3. The remaining resident can obtain a cosigner. A cosigner must have gross income equal to 6 times the stated rent.

Steps to Remove

  • Select option 1, 2 or 3.
  • Pay fee
  • All parties Sign Remove Resident Form.

Adding & Removing Warning:

If your plan is to remove one resident and add another in their place, it is important that the remaining residents and NEW resident realize that they are inheriting liability from the departing resident. This means if damage as caused by the former resident, ONLY the people on the lease when it ends will be held accountable for charges.

For this reason, Sleep Sound recommends you thoroughly document and if necessary charge the departing resident for any items that could be considered “beyond normal wear and tear”
