The Ohio SubLease Agreement with the written permission of the landlord, is a legal document that is agreed to in writing between an initial tenant and a new tenant.The sublease will allow permission for the subtenant the right to take over the lease or share the lease and the premises that’s already in place, from or with the initial tenant. The subtenant would pay their rent directly to the initial tenant. The initial tenant would then pay the full monthly rental amount to the landlord.

The landlord must continue to hold the initial tenant directly responsible for the rental amount as well as any damages to the premises, including any damages that may have been caused by the subtenant. Usually, the first tenant must get consent from the landlord before he/she is allowed to sublease the premises. The subtenant must carefully review the terms and conditions of the agreement to be certain that they understand their responsibilities, the rules and regulations prior to signing of the lease.
