Everything You Need to Know About Subleasing
There are two types of subleases: those that are approved by the landlord and those that aren’t. If the landlord approves, the sublessee takes over the role of the tenant and they take the place of the original tenant, including responsibilities for paying rent and for any damages or lease violations (this is called an assignment). However, if the sublessee is not approved, the original tenant is entirely responsible for any non-payment, damages, or lease violations by the sublessee. Additionally, the original tenant may be in violation of the lease or local regulations.
