Whether a tenant can sublet a property depends on the terms of the lease agreement and the laws of the state or municipality where the property is located. In general, a tenant may be able to sublet a property if the lease agreement allows it, or if the landlord gives their consent.
A sublet is when a tenant rents out their rental unit to another person, known as the subtenant, while they still remain responsible for the lease agreement. The subtenant will have to pay rent to the tenant and the tenant is still responsible for paying the rent to the landlord.
It's important for the tenant to check the lease agreement before subletting the property and to also inform the landlord of the subletting plans.
In any case, the tenant remains liable under the original lease agreement, and is responsible for ensuring that the subtenant complies with the lease terms, including paying rent and taking care of the property.
At Wolfnest, we are happy to alter the lease agreement to add or remove tenants, but we do not allow subletting of the unit.
