Create a high quality document online now!

The Rhode Island SubLease Agreement is a legal document that serves as an agreement between an initial tenant and a subtenant (one who will rent from the initial renter). This document will allow a subtenant, in agreement with the landlord and the initial tenant to either share the premises or for the subtenant to take over the lease. Regardless, the initial tenant will be responsible for collecting the rent from the subtenant and paying to the landlord in a timely fashion. The initial tenant will also be responsible for collecting a security deposit from the subtenant and will remain solely responsible for any damages to the property.
