Will being late on the first months rent impact my ability to relet my apartment? 1 Answers as of June 10, 2011I'm a college student and my apartment's rent hasn't started yet. Since I can't afford it I am re-letting the place. But I can't pay the first month's rent and it's already late by a few days. will this affect my ability to re-let my place? (re-let not sublet)

If the landlord serves you with a 3-day notice to pay or quit it will prevent you from reletting. By the way, there is no such thing. You can sublet or you can assign your lease. Either one would require approval from landlord and a creditworthy tenant. You would also still be liable if your subtenant bails.
