A Massachusetts sublease agreement form is for tenants currently under a lease agreement seeking to rent a portion or all of their space to someone else. Before entering into any binding contract, the main tenant should ensure that subletting is allowed under their original agreement. Permission from the landlord or property manager may also be required (which can be done by sending a written notice).

It is recommended to properly screen the tenant you select (“Sublessee”) to occupy your rented property as he or she will be your sole responsibility. This means that if the sublessee does not pay rent or refuses to vacate the premises that all legal costs in the efforts to remove them from the premises will be your liability. Also, if the rent is not paid on a given monthly period, the lease amount to the landlord is still obligated under the original lease contract.

  • If the rental unit was constructed before 1978, it is required by federal law to disclose that there may be lead-based paint on the premises.
