The Landlord's Consent to Sublease Letter is a letter confirming that the landlord has granted consent for the tenant to sublet their rental property. A sublease is the lease of a property by an existing tenant. In a sublease, the tenant will rent part or all of the rental property they occupy to a third party for a fee. Think of a sublease as a tenant becoming a landlord to a third party, who becomes the sublessee. However, the tenant will resume occupation of the rental property upon the expiration of the sublease.
Most leases require the tenant to obtain the landlord's permission before subletting the property. In this case, the tenant should first use the Request for Consent to Sublease to make the request, and then the landlord can use this letter to indicate their approval or consent to the sublease. This document is a simple document which confirms the landlord's consent to the sublease. Note that the landlord can indicate their consent either orally or in writing. However, it is best to have a written consent for proper documentation.
How to use the document
This document should be used to indicate a landlord's approval for the sublease.
