Tips in Creating and Filling out a Sublease Consent Form

  • Use appropriate terms: Upon the addition of a sublease consent form, the previously signed lease agreement will then be referred to as the “master lease” which serves as the basis of the rest of the terms and conditions to be followed by all the involved parties of the lease. In addition, thn simple first tenant cay be referred to as the “tenant” or the “conditional tenant” depending on what the landlord prefers.
  • Specify the limitations of the sublease: There are some individuals who rent properties for sublease purposes which allows them to welcome a constant source of income. This is the reason why a landlord should be informed about a sublease and must mandate limitations to the tenants. Common limitations include limiting the sublease to one tenant and only to a limited portion of the property. This allows the landlord to still have control over who is using and living in the rented property.
  • Enlist the liabilities and responsibilities: If the landlord prefers to retain the tenant’s liabilities which were defined in the master lease, then a statement regarding the assignment of liabilities must be included in the form to properly inform the tenant. Moreover, the responsibilities of the subtenant will also need to be specified especially since he is not a party in the master lease.

There are still a lot of different varieties of sublease consent forms which could be used by landlords, property owner, and tenants. However, regardless of the variety, a sublease consent form must be based on the rules and regulations or standards of the State as well as the agreements and considerations in the lease contract which was signed first. In addition, sublease consent forms must also be accompanied by other subleasing documents such as residential lease forms in lieu of the property and the documents which indicate the tenant and income verification results of the subtenant who will be leasing out the property.
