The Texas sublease is a real estate form that allows a tenant that is currently under a lease agreement to be able to rent the same space to another person (Sublessee). The agreement may be for a portion or the entire property and usually has to be approved by the landlord as a standard lease agreement will have subletting prohibited.

The tenant should understand that there is a level of risk involved with taking on a tenant such as:

  • Rent – If the sublessee does not pay, the landlord is still owed the amount as stated in the master lease
  • Eviction – If the sublessee refuses to vacate the property, the tenant is responsible for all legal costs and procedures for getting the person(s) out of the property
  • Damage – The tenant is ultimately responsible for any repairs that are needed after the sublessee leaves

Therefore it is recommended that in addition to a deposit that the tenant review the person through the rental application before entering into a binding agreement.

  • If the housing unit was built prior to 1978, the tenant must give a copy of the lead paint disclosure to the sublessee. As well as have it signed and attached to the contract.
