Nevada Sublease Agreement Form – PDF Template
A sublease agreement is a document used by a tenant that is under a specified lease agreement term ending on a particular end date to rent the unit (or a portion) to another person (Hereinafter referred to as a “Sublessee”). The tenant should check with their original lease to make sure that this is an allowed arrangement under their terms and conditions as most contracts forbid subletting. Therefore, the tenant will have to get written permission from the landlord or property manager to legally allow a sublessee.
Most landlords are understanding of the tenant and allow the tenancy to occur. Although the original tenant, or “Sub lessor”, should realize the following;
- If payment is not made by the sublessee, the sublessor is required to pay the landlord the full amount as described in the original lease
- If any property damage is incurred during the term of the sublessee’s term, the sub lessor is liable for any and all repairs
- If an eviction is necessary, all legal costs affiliated and damages to the owner will be the sub lessor’s responsibility
For the above mentioned reasons, it is highly recommended that the sub lessor verify the sublessee’s credit and financial capabilities through the rental application.
