A Landlord's Letter Denying a Sublease is a letter that may be sent by a landlord (also known as the "lessor") denying or rejecting the request of the tenant (also known as "lessee") to sublease a particular real property. This letter informs and serves as a notice to the tenant that the property should not be subleased or assigned to another. The importance of this letter is to apprise the tenant of what the landlord prohibits and to prevent a breach of the lease agreement. This document can also include what the tenant may be liable for in case he violates the lease agreement by subleasing the property or in case he subleases the property without the landlord's consent.

On the other hand, in case the landlord consents or allows the subleasing of the property, then a Landlord's Consent to Sublease may be used.

How to use this document

The identity of the landlord who may be an individual person or a company and the date on which the letter is written should be included. Then, the identity of the tenant and his address must also be included. There are two situations which may require different information in the letter:

  • If there is an existing lease agreement or contract, it may be attached to the letter or a portion thereof may be included therein, as well as the consequences of violating such agreement.
  • If there is no such contract, then the reason of the landlord for denying the sublease may be included.

After completing the document, two copies must be printed, one for each party. Then it must be signed before sending it to the tenant.

Applicable law

The Civil Code of the Philippines governs laws on contracts, obligations, and leases. Additionally, Republic Act No. 9653 (the "Rent Control Act") as as extended and amended by the National Human Settlements Board Resolution No. 2021-02, governs lease contracts that fall under the following conditions:

1. The property is located in the National Capital Region or highly urbanized cities and the total monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Ten Thousand Pesos (P10,000.00)
2. The property is located in other areas and the monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Five Thousand Pesos (P5,000.00).
