New York Sublease Agreement | PDF – MS Word
A New York sublease agreement form is designed for tenants that are already renting property and would like to rent either a part of or the entire space to someone else. This allows the tenant that is holding the original lease agreement to vacate the property early, or for a period of time, or if he or she would like a roommate to help with the rental payment every month.
It must be understood by all the parties that the original tenant (sublessor) is fully responsible for the new tenant (sublessee). This agreement does not involve the landlord, even though he or she should be notified of the arrangement. This means that if rent is not paid by the sublessee, the sublessor must continue to make payments every month.
- If the housing unit was built prior to 1978, it is required by federal law that the lead-based paint disclosure form be given to the sublessee.
