Updated October 05, 2022

A New Jersey sublease agreement is a rental contract made between the original tenant (sub-lessor) and a sub-tenant (sub-lessee) for the purpose of subletting a residence. A sublease provides the sub-lessee the legal right to either share or completely occupy the rented premises from the sub-lessor. Sub-lessees pay rent directly to sub-lessors.

At the same time, the sub-lessor retains the responsibility of paying all rent-related costs to the property owner/manager in a timely fashion. Landlords who consent to their tenant subletting the property often hold the sub-lessor liable for the rent as well as any damages on the property caused by either tenant. Unless otherwise written in the master lease, sub-lessors must procure permission from the landlord to arrange a sublet to another individual.
