Missouri Sublease Agreement Template

Updated March 01, 2024

A Missouri sublease agreement is a type of leasing agreement between the current tenant under a master lease and a third party who rents part or all the property. The tenant holding the original lease with the property owner/manager is known as the sub-lessor and acts as a landlord to the secondary tenant, known as the sub-lessee.

Right to Sublet

Tenants in Missouri are required to get their landlord’s approval before subletting a rented property. If a rental is sublet without permission, according to state law, the landlord can double the rent that the tenant was paying.[1]

When a landlord’s permission to sublease is desired or required, consider using a Landlord Consent Form.

Short-Term (Lodgings) Tax

While Missouri does not regulate short-term rentals (STR) on a statewide basis, sales tax is charged on such transactions at the state level. Additionally, counties and cities may levy their own taxes and impose regulations. Typically, a short-term rental is one offered for 30 days or less.

Missouri short-term rental taxes:

  • 4.225% state sales tax[2]
  • County taxes/permits (varies by county)
  • City taxes/permits (varies by city)
