Should I submit a copy of our lease if there's only one of us listed?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm currently working on my ROC.

 

While we now have a jointly signed lease that we can submit, we used to sublet from a friend of ours and the sublease agreement only included my spouse's name, not mine, because the master lease didn't allow more than 1 tenant. 

 

We're planning to include a note explaining this. However in this case would it be better or worse to send a copy of that lease? - since it doesn't include both our names anyways. I was going to, but now having second thoughts. 

 

Thanks in advance for your inputs!

Can you get the friend to submit an affidavit acknowledging that he knew you guys lived together at that address?

I second this. Submit copies of both you and your spouse's ids highlighting the same address and a letter from the friend or a neighbor will support the lease being only under your spouse's name.

A letter of explanation will also a big help plus the suggestions of these two. That's what I did when my name was not listed on the lease.

If you can show to USCIS as well that both of you paying the lease then it will a huge plus.

Thanks yall, I'll be including our driver's licenses in that address, important mails (such as USCIS!) and paychecks to myself showing that address, renters insurance on top of the affidavit. Fairly confident this should do. Thanks so much again!

Just as a note for the future, even if the person can't be added as a tenant, they should be able to be added as a resident. While they are not legally bound to the lease, it at least acknowledges that the landlord knows the other person is staying there.
