What is a Consent to Sublease?

There are many reasons why you might need to sublease the property you are renting. With a Consent to Sublease you can receive the landlord's permission, and help protect yourself legally, as a tenant, if you decide to organize a subletter. And if you're a landlord, you can use a Consent to Sublease to document, legally, the new rental arrangement, so that everything's clear as to who is living in your property, and who is responsible for paying the rent. 
Making sure the details of a new sublease agreement are clearly ironed out, and documented, is important for everyone involved—the tenant, the subletter, and the landlord all benefit from a Consent to Sublease. As many landlords don't allow subleasing, if you're the tenant you'll need to check your lease first. Even if it's not allowed according to the lease, you can check with your landlord and you may discover they're amenable to a sublease. And as a landlord, subleasing can ensure continuance of rent payment if your current tenant is unable to fulfill their obligations. Whether you're the tenant, landlord, or potential subletting tenant, everyone can be on the same page, in writing, with a Consent to Sublease.

When to use a Consent to Sublease:

  • You want to sublease a room, entire property, or commercial space.
  • You're a landlord interested in subleasing options for your tenants.
  • You're the one who wants to sublet property.

. USE OF PREMISES. Except as otherwise provided in this Consent, the Subtenant will only use the Premises for a purpose consistent with the permitted use allowed in the Lease. Additionally, the Subtenant agrees to comply with all other applicable provisions of the Lease, and will not do anything that would constitute a violation of any part or condition of the Lease.


. CONTINUING LIABILITY.
