Getting Approval for a Sublet in Iowa

Iowa laws do not specify how you should send a request for approval, so stick with common sense.

What to Send

Prepare as much information on your situation and your proposed subtenant as possible. We've created a sample sublet request letter you can customize and send. Send the note along with a copy of your sublet agreement and evidence that you've already screened them to make sure they can pay the rent.

How to Send It

Send this along with your sublet agreement to your landlord, using whichever means of communication you usually use to get in touch with them. Ask them to sign the sublet agreement. Both you and your subtenant should have a copy of the signed lease.
