Some leases allow an existing tenant to sublease all or a portion of the rental unit to another party. If a lease does not specifically allow this process in the lease terms and conditions, then a tenant desiring to sublease their rental unit needs to first to get written permission from the landlord to be able to do so.
If a lease does not prohibit a sublease, then the tenant is allowed to do this. Some leases require the landlord’s approval of a sublease tenant. To avoid legal difficulties, it is a good idea to seek a landlord’s approval, no matter what, when seeking to enter into a sublease agreement with another party.
What is a sublease agreement?
A sublease agreement is created when the original tenant wants to rent out all, or a portion of, a rental unit to another party. A sublease is a binding legal agreement between the original tenant, the subtenant, and the landlord.
Under a sublease, the original tenant is responsible for the actions of the subtenant. For example, if the subtenant fails to pay the rent due, the original tenant is responsible for the rent payment. If a subtenant damages the rental property, the original tenant is also held responsible. This is why careful screening of an applicant for a sublease and the landlord’s approval of the applicant is warranted.
