Indiana Sublease Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Indiana Sublease Agreement Template is a written contract form which will definitively document the conditions of a sublet lease between a sub-lessor and a sub-lessee. The sub-lessor is defined as a principal tenant who holds the lease to a property with that property’s owner or landlord. A sub-lessee is the party which will rent this property from the sub-lessor. This contract form will define both of these parties and the property thus, assigning the sub-lessor and sub-lessee the roles of landlord and tenant (respectively) in relation to one another.

In addition, the time period for which the sub-lessor will rent the property to the sub-lessee will be defined. Since the sub-lessee does not have an agreement with the property owner/landlord, once the lease giving the sub-lessor control and responsibility for the property terminates, the lease the sub-lessor has with the sub-lessee must as well. Therefore, it is customary for the time period the sublease is in effect for to conclude before that of the sub-lessor’s lease with the property owner.

How to Write

Step 1 – In the introductory paragraphs define the parties involved and the address of the property being sublet. To do this enter the name of the sub-lessor, the address of the sub-lessor, the name of the sub-lessee and the address in the sub-lessee in the first paragraph.

Step 2 – In the second paragraph enter the street address of the property to be rented and the city where the property being is rented.

Step 3 – The first section will require a definition for the lease type. If it is a Fixed Sublease, check the first box then enter the date range the lease is in effect. If it is a Month-to-Month Sublease, check the second box then enter the starting date of the agreement and number of days’ notice necessary to terminate it. If it is a Week-to-Week Sublease, check the third box in this section then enter the number of days’ written notice either party must give to terminate the agreement.

Step 4 – In the second section (Utilities), list all the utilities the sub-lessee has will not be responsible to pay for while this lease is in effect.

Step 5 – The “Security Deposit” section will need a definition for the amount of money the sub-lessee gives the sub-lessor to hold during the lease to protect against damages the sub-lessee has caused. Write this dollar amount on the first blank line and enter the numerical dollar amount on the second blank line. On the third blank line enter the number of days a sub-lessor has to provide a reason for not returning the entire amount after the sub-less has moved out.

Step 6 – The “Landlord’s Consent” section requires whether the landlord has approved this sublease. If this lease requires the landlord’s signature to be binding check the first box. If this lease only requires a signature from the sub-lessor and sub-lessee to be binding (but not the landlord) check the second box.

Step 7 – The “Other” section is available to document any additional conditions not previously included in this lease form. Only agreements entered onto or attached to this document will be considered part of this lease. If additional terms and conditions are attached in a separate document, it must be named, signed, dated, and mentioned in this section.

Step 8 – The “Date & Signature” area at the end this section provides several spaces to give the binding effect of the contract on each party involved. In the first paragraph, enter the date of the agreement. Next, there will be a space provided for the sub-lessor, sub-lessee, witness(es), and guarantor involved to sign and print their names. Below this, a consenting landlord may sign and print his/her name. Finally, the sub-lessor and sub-lessee will need to verify if the original lease is attached and if an inventory check-list is attached by initialing the statement lines at the bottom.
