The Kentucky Sublease Agreement Template provides a proper method for conducting a rental arrangement between a sub-lessor and sub-lessee. The sub-lessor will have two ongoing agreements regarding the property. The first one would be the primary agreement between the property owner/property manager and the sub-lessor. In this agreement, a sub-lessor will uphold the responsibilities of a tenant which allows the sub-lessor to maintain a residence or control of the property. This comes with the responsibility of financially maintaining a lease.

In some cases, the sub-lessor may not be able to uphold his/her financial responsibility and may have a significant amount of time before the lease terminates. However, relief is available provided it is attained correctly. A sub-lessor may sub-let the premises to a third party…a sub-lessee. Here, the sub-lessor must fulfill the obligations of a landlord and the sub-lessee that of a tenant. This does not release the sub-lessor from their obligations as a tenant in the original lease rather it does provide a means for the sub-lessor to fulfill their end of the contract. The sub-lessor must still provide the rent money to the property owner even if the sub-lessee does not live up to his/her obligations. A written contract is an excellent way of deterring such an instance.

A sub-lease will bind the sub-lessor and sub-lessee in a rental agreement by means of the signature of both parties. It should be noted the property owner does not have a binding agreement with the sub-lessee. It is, for this reason, the lifespan of a sub-lease is, typically, a shorter period of time than the sublessor’s original lease.

How to Write

Step 1 – In the first paragraph, fill in the blank spaces with the following information in this order: the full name of the sub-lessee, address of the sub-lessor, name of the sub-lessee, and address of the sub-lessee.

Step 2 – In the second paragraph, enter the street address of the property to be sub-leased then the city where that property is located.

Step 3 – In the first item, known as “Term,” It be time to determine what type of lease this is. There are three choices: Fixed Sublease, Month-to-Month Sublease, and Week-to-Week sublease. Only one of these may be chosen. If this is a Fixed Sublease, place a checkmark in the first box then enter the starting date and termination date in the spaces provided. If this is a Month-to-Month Sublease, place a check mark in the second box then enter the start date of the lease and the number of days’ written notice one party must give the other to terminate the agreement. If this is a Week-to-Week Sublease, place a check mark in the third box then enter the start date of the agreement and the number of days’ notice necessary to terminate it.

Step 4 – In the second item, which is labeled “Utilities,” enter the utilities and services the sub-lessee will be responsible for paying for the duration of this sublease.

Step 5 – The “Security Deposit” item requires the security amount the landlord requires the tenant to surrender for the lifespan of the sublease. It will also be necessary to write in the number of days a tenant must wait before receiving an explanation (from the landlord) for any missing money from the security deposit.

Step 6 – There may be additional terms and conditions the sub-lessor or sub-lessee have agreed to not previously covered. If this is the case, report these terms exactly as agreed to in the section labeled “Other.”

Step 7 – Locate the section labeled “Landlord’s Consent.” Here, place a checkmark in the first box if the sublease is not binding without landlord consent. If landlord consent is needed place a check mark in the second box.

Step 8 – The “Date & Signature” section is where the parties involved were to bind themselves to the agreement as of a particular date. Enter the date of the lease in the first paragraph. Below this will be two columns, one for the sub-lessor and sub-lessee. Each one must sign and print his or her name. Each of these signatures should accompany a witness’s signature and printed name. There will be a space beneath this section for a guardian to sign and print his/her name (if applicable). If the landlord will give consent for this agreement, he/she must provide his or her signature and printed name under “Landlord’s Consent.”

Step 9 – Lastly, the sub-lessee and sub-lessor must provide their initials in the appropriate area if an Original Lease is attached and if an Inventory (Move-In) Checklist is attached.
