Tennessee Sublease Agreement Form – PDF Template
The Tennessee sublease agreement allows a resident of Tennessee to sublet property to another. Subletting is the leasing of space by a person who is currently under a fixed agreement and wishes to act as a Sublessor and lease a portion or the entire space to someone else (“Sublessee”). Typically, a residential lease agreement forbids the act of any type of subletting on behalf of the tenant, so it may be necessary to get written approval before seeking out a subtenant.
When accepting a Sublessee, it is a good idea to verify their income and employment status through the rental application as the Sublessor will be responsible for all rental payments, damage/repairs to the premises, and eviction/vacating at the appropriate time.
- As per federal law, the Sublessee must be presented with the lead-based paint disclosure if the housing unit was constructed before 1978.
