Louisiana Sublease Agreement Form – PDF Template
A sublease contract in Louisiana allows for a tenant that is under an agreement with a landlord for a fixed period to sublet a portion or the entire space to someone else (Sublessee). The term for the new tenant cannot be for any duration that lasts longer than the original lease agreement with the landlord.
Often times subletting is prohibited in a standard one (1) year lease contract. Therefore, it is required that the tenant receive written authorization from the landlord to create this type of arrangement.
The original tenant, or Sublessor, should keep in mind that he or she will be exposed to all damage, rent not paid, and any evictions that may be need to be completed on behalf of the sublessee’s negligence. It is recommended to properly screen all sublessee’s through the use of a rental application before allowing access to the property and signing a binding contract.
