Subletting allows a renter to turn around and lease (or more accurately, sublease) a rental property, commercial or residential, in part or in full, to a subtenant. There are a variety of reasons to do this, including getting someone else to pay the rent in the original tenant's absence, a change of mind after signing a lease, or even for profit.
Unfortunately, subletting is often prohibited in the original lease agreement. In this case, a tenant can attempt to request a Consent to Sublease from the landlord.
As many residential and commercial lease agreements in the U.S. prohibit subletting, a tenant will have to obtain a Consent to Sublease from the landlord if they want to sublet or sublease part or all of the rental property legally.
The Consent to Sublease will usually contain a disclaimer in which the landlord consents to the original tenant's subletting in exchange for the original tenant being liable for any damage caused by the subtenant.
Depending on your state, a Consent to Sublease may also be known as:
A tenant or a landlord could need a Consent to Sublease if they both agree that subletting should be allowed at a rental property.
