A Maine sublease agreement is a contract made to adhere to an increasingly common type of lease. It conveys a residential agreement whereby a tenant deems it necessary to rent out the property or a significant portion of a property to a subtenant (sub-lessee). Such arrangement can be useful in cases where the tenant (sub-lessor) must travel for an extended period of time or move elsewhere for one reason or another while still being under a lease term. However, the sub-lessor will remain responsible for ensuring obligations to the lease contract with the landlord or property owner/manager are fulfilled for the entirety of its lifespan. Note that entering a sublease agreement places substantial liability on the sub-lessor; a considerable amount of thought should be given to the implications. Among a range of responsibilities, the sub-lessor must carry out tenant-related duties while simultaneously serving as a landlord to the sub-lessee, which often demands ensuring the property is safe, sanitary, and livable.
