Listing Types:

Rentals/listings – These are units available by the landlord. These listings will require you to sign a legally-binding contract or lease of a certain length, which can range from 3 months-12 months.

Sublease – These are posted by students who have signed a lease for a rental but would like someone to live in their room and make monthly payments for it while they are away. This could be for any amount of time the student needs someone to take over their space. A new lease is agreed upon and signed by both you and the landlord in this circumstance.
