Lilly is right. A written agreement does cover you legally, but evicting a sublettor (and not being able to return to your own apartment for a time) is not a process you want to go through, even given that you would win.

Therefore, think like a landlord (which essentially you'll be for 2 months). Check the credit report and verify employment of your prospective sublettor and check character references as well. Good luck.

: Legal or not, if he doesn't want to leave at the end of the term, irregardless of what he signs, you have to take him to court to evict him(or her), which defeats the whole purpose of having him sign something in the first place. Eventually he'll have to leave, but it's getting him out if he doesn't want to go that's the problem.
