Hi there,

- I'm going to let my flat out.

Do you think the above sentence mean that you're going go have tenants who will rent your flat? Do you find my instance natural enough? If not how could you paraphrase it using different words than flat to let?

Thank you!

    "I'm going to sublet my apartment." probably. We don't use "flat" nearly as much over on this side of the ocean.

    The only point I would add is that "sublet" implies that you are leasing or renting from someone and then turning around and leasing or renting that same apartment to someone else, as far as I understand the term.

    If I owned the apartment I would probably say: "I'm putting my/an apartment up for rent" or "I'm renting out my apartment."
