Mississippi SubLease Agreement Template

The Mississippi Sublease Agreement Template gives Sub-Lessors and Sub-Lessees the recommended option of putting their rental arrangement in writing. This will act as a security precaution for both of these individuals as well as the Property Owner or Landlord. Though it is important to keep in mind such an agreement has no power over a Property Owner or Landlord, only the Sub-Lessor and Sub-Lessee. This agreement would be considered binding to the Sub-Lessor and the Sub-Lessee even in cases where Landlord/Property Owner consent has been given.

Generally speaking, the primary purpose of this type of lease is to aid the Sub-Lessor in meeting the Master Lease or the lease contract he or she holds with the Landlord/Property Owner. This may be necessary for a variety of reasons. For instance, perhaps the Sub-Lessor is getting married and moving to another city. Mississippi State Law (Mississippi Code Title 89 – Real and Personal Property) will still expect the Sub-Lessor to fulfill his/her lease requirements with the Landlord (such as paying rent). Sub-letting the space to a third party Tenant may provide the financial relief necessary for the Sub-Lessor to achieve his/her goals while still fulfilling the Master Lease Obligations they are responsible for. Note: This does not release the Sub-Lessor from fulfilling these obligations, it only gives them a means for meeting them. If the third party Tenant or Sub-Lessee or Property Owner is unable to meet his/her obligations the Sub-Lessor must make sure not to allow a lease or sub-lease violation to occur. Notice that if a Property Owner does not live up to their obligations the Sub-Lessor will be responsible to the Sub-Lessee in making sure no one suffers for this violation. This is because the Sub-Lessor in relation to the Sub-Lessee is a Landlord and must fulfill the functions of such in the eyes of the Sublease and State Law.

How to Write

Step 1 – In the first paragraph, there will be several blank spaces. Write in the Name of the Sub-Lessor (original tenant), the Address of the Sub-Lessor, the Name of the Sub-Lessee (new Tenant), and Address of the Sub-Lessee in these spaces in that order.

Step 2 – In the second paragraph, enter the Address where the rented property is located in the first blank space. In the second one, enter the City this property is located in.

Step 3 – In Item I, labeled as “Term,” indicate whether this is a Fixed Sublease, a Month-to-Month Sublease, or a Week-to-Week Sublease. Only one of these choices may be selected then supplied with the appropriate information. For the Fixed Sublease, the Start Date and End Date of the Sublease must be entered. If this is either of the At-Will Tenancies, enter the Start Date and the number of days’ notice necessary to terminate the agreement while showing compliance to the Sublease.

Step 4 – In Item II, named “Utilities,” list the utilities/services the Sub-Lessee must obtain and/or pay for during the lifetime of the Sublease.

Step 5 – In Item IV, “Security Deposit,” enter the full amount of security a Sub-Lessor requires the Sub-Lessee to submit to enter the arrangement on the first two blank lines provided. On the third blank line, enter the number of days past the Sublease termination date where the Sub-Lessee may expect a written explanation for any amount missing from the returned security deposit.

Step 6 – In Item VIII, “Other,” enter any additional arrangements, agreements, concessions, or disclosures that must be considered part of this lease but have not been mentioned.

Step 7 – In Item XIII, report whether the Landlord consent is necessary for this agreement to be binding. If it is necessary, place a checkmark in the first box. If Landlord consent is not required for this Sub-lease to be binding place a check mark in the second box.

Step 8 – In Item XV, “Date & Signature,” enter the Date of the agreement. Then both the Sub-lessor and Sub-lessee must sign and print their names in the spaces provided. There will be an additional two spaces beneath each of these party’s signature line for a witness to that signature to also sign and print his/her name. There will also be a line a parent or guardian must sign and print his/her name if the Sub-Tenant is under age. Finally, there will be a consent line where the Property Owner/Landlord may sign and print his/her name. Note: If an original lease and inventory checklist is attached, both parties will need to initial the appropriate line at the end of the document.
