Consent to Sublease

The Consent to Sublease is a document which expresses a landlord's willingness to grant their tenant the consent to sublease the rental property to a subtenant based on certain terms and conditions.

The tenant is a party that occupies the landlord's property either for a term certain or periodically. The tenant is given the exclusive right to the use and occupation of the rental property and under the law, the tenant can not sublet or assign any part of the rental property to another except with the consent of the landlord. It is important that this consent is given in writing to avoid ambiguities and for reference purposes.

Although the tenant is granted the consent to sublease the rental property, the tenant remains bound by the original lease.

This document is used in situations where the Residential Lease or Commercial Lease agreement entered between the landlord and tenant does not explicitly permit the tenant to sublet the rental property. Hence, the landlord's written consent is required.

This document the following information will be required: the names and addresses of the landlord, tenant and subtenant; the description of the subleased premises; the rent the subtenant is required to pay. The document also requires the form filler to specify whether the substantive lease is a commercial or residential lease and whether the tenant will let the entire rental property or only a portion of the property.
