Free Sublease Agreement

Download the sublease agreements for every State that allow a tenant (Sublessor) that is already occupying property under a rental contract with a property owner to lease the part or the entire space to someone else (Sublessee). This type of occupancy is common in urban and college areas where roommates are involved or if a person will be leaving the unit for a period of time.

Most contracts forbid this practice without the written consent from the landlord and it should be understood that all sublessee’s are the sole responsibility of the sublessor and not the landlord. This means that if rent is not paid by the sublessee the landlord must still be paid by the original tenant, and if an eviction should have to take place it also must be conducted by the sublessor. For these reasons it is highly recommended that a thorough credit check be done on any potential sublessee’s to ensure that he or she is able to pay rent in a timely manner.
