Just wondered, when you rent an apartment or house, and then sublet separate bedrooms to others who pay you, do you have to get the property owner's approval? ...I would think so, but I've never done that.

You are supposed to get permission but nobody does. The whole valley is sublet.

and when the slimeball that sublets the apartment goes on a bender and swings from the Chandelier, and floods the entire downstairs I wonder who the landlord will hold responsible?

Whoever is on the lease. That's it. My wife sees the sublet situation all the time.

Some people sublet to their felon, no job having, drug using cousin.

Others sublet to their fragile, dear old grandma that can't stay by herself, yet can't get put on the lease because her SSI is too much for low income housing.

I hear these stories everyday when my wife gets home.

I would obtain permission from the property owner first, if I find I cannot afford to rent a house on my own though, then I wont. I know plenty of good apt complexes in the NW, which I would never sublet

Thinking about it though, I doubt he would give me permission to do so

The last place I lived in Summerlin (the Vistas off Charleston and 215) the owner lived out of state and rented each one of his five bedrooms in the house out to different people, one to an older responsible mid 50s couple, two rooms to two 18 yr olds, my room, and the 5th room to a man who traveled to California a lot for work. The 50s couple was in charge of the house, we all shared chores, did dishes, shared food, it was nice

I would say to rent an apt for a year, save up and then buy. I think the hassle of having good roommates is more work than not. It's different when you are the one renting a room as opposed to the one in charge. Then, if you are busy with work and stuff, you don't have to worry about any maintenance and the perks like pools and workout rooms are a plus in an apt.

Then again, it is nice having the income, especially if you end up not liking your job and have to switch.

Something like this would be perfect...should I choose to rent a house
NW - BRAND NEW 3B/2.5BA/2 Garages w/ Full Appliances

This one too
http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/apa/3505156355.html

I think if I rented a home, something around $1000 even, would be ideal. I could rent a house without overextending myself

The first home is not bad. Probably too good to be true. The second home was flagged for removal. I wonder why?

Well, the 2nd home, was a 2 story home. 1500 sq ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, located off Ann Rd and Decatur in North Las Vegas

I really like both areas (95/Durango and Ann/Decatur/215) but knowing me I would probably opt for the newer home off Durango and 95

Of course you don't. In fact, I can't think of any reason why a single, early twenty-something, young guy would want to.

Why do you want to?
