Pennsylvania SubLease Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Pennsylvania SubLease Agreement is a written legal document that with permission of the landlord, will allow the primary tenant to sublease the premises by sharing the unit or allowing the subtenant to take over the lease.  The subtenant would pay rent directly to the primary tenant. The primary tenant would then remain responsible to pay the full monthly rental amount to the landlord.

The landlord will continue to hold the primary tenant directly responsible for the rent as well as the care of the unit until the expiration of the lease.  The subtenant must carefully review the terms and conditions of the agreement to be certain that they understand their responsibilities, the rules and regulations and expectations, prior to signing of the lease.
