What are some tips for subletting your apartment?

If there is a sump pump in a basement is that a sign that there is flooding?
Not at all. It is an insurance policy so to speak. Many houses have one in case of heavy rains.

I will be gone for the summer, but need an apartment when I get back. When should I start looking/applying for apartments?
I would talk to the Apartment people. I have nothing to do with this company but know they are good with rentals.

How to rent with no SSN in Chicago?
Use the present landlord as a reference and maybe consider paying a larger deposit. It is not an easy situation.

According to your site, there should be a way to flag houses that we know are scams but there isn't.
There is a way - click on the "More" button just below the picture, click on "Flag" and select the reason you are flagging it.

How do I stop scammers from making scam posts on Truliia of real rental properties that I have for rent ?
This is a real problem. Contract Trulia immediately when you see this happening and they will delete the scam post. It is happening all over and is a very sad situation.

Landlord didn't give me a receipt for security deposit, now 10 months later they're asking for a W-9 and he says I owe taxes on $4.14.
Why would you owe taxes, in theory the landlord should have placed the security in an interest bearing escrow account.
