The Michigan Sublease Agreement Template provides the backbone for a Sub-let contract between a Sub-Lessor and Sub-Lessee. This is an ideal contract for those who are not professional landlords, need to sub-let, and wish to be in compliance with the basic laws governing lease agreements in the State of Michigan. Generally speaking, it is not uncommon for a Sub-Lessor to only be a landlord in terms of this agreement as they do not own the property being rented but rather are in a lease with the owner of the property being rented. However, for all due purposes the Sub-Lessor will be the landlord of the property in the eyes of the Sub-Lessor. So if there is a problem with the property the Sub-Tenant may look to the Sub-Lessor for a solution. It is fair to mention that a Sub-Lessor will also retain the role of Tenant in regards to the property owner. That is, it is the Sub-Lessor the property owner will seek proper and timely payment of the rent.

This Sub-Lease does not bind the property owner to the Sub-Tenant and vice versa. It is exclusive to the Sub-Lessor and Sub-Lessee and will be limited by the master lease held for the property.
