Tennessee Sublease Agreement Form – PDF Template
A sublease allows a resident of Tennessee to sublet, which is the leasing of space by a person who is currently under a fixed agreement and wishes to act as 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 sub-tenant.
When accepting a sublessee, it is a good idea to verify their income and employment status through the rental application as you are now on the hook for all; rental payments, damage/repairs to the premises, and eviction/vacating at the appropriate time.
- The sublessee must be presented with the lead based paint disclosure as per federal law if the housing unit was constructed before 1978
