Subleases are distinct from regular leases, and any Agreement Forms concerning subleased property should reflect this. Lease contracts are signed by the original owner of a property and a (first) tenant. This tenant might then become a landlord and sublease the rented property to another (second) tenant. This system also works for equipment and vehicles.
If you’re leasing a vehicle, or a residential or commercial property, and you want to legally lease it to someone else (perhaps to help you pay the original lease fee), you will find these free samples useful in drafting a sublease agreement form.

When to Sublease
It is often the case that the original lease holders will sublease or sublet a property or part of it to a subtenant. This may be done for a number of reasons:
- in order to help them earn money through rent to pay the owner for the head lease.
- to take over in payments and maintenance of the property while the original tenants are away during the lease term (e.g. on a vacation).
The subtenant has to, by contract, comply with the usual lease terms as stated in the sublease contract. But ultimately, only the original (first) tenant is accountable to the owner for the full payment and maintenance of the head lease.
Note: Subleasing – or subletting – is different from reletting. Reletting is when the original lease holders void their contract to bring in a new tenant who will then alone become fully responsible for that contract.
Naturally, these sublease agreement forms will differ from our other Sample Standard Lease Agreement Forms.
