Texas Sublease Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Texas Sublease Agreement is a legal document in which, with the written permission of the owner or landlord of a rental property, would allow an initial tenant to rent or share residence with a subtenant. This does not take the responsibilities of the initial agreement away from the initial tenant for the care and rental payments of the premises. The initial tenant will continue to be responsible to collect rent and monitor proper care of the property. This document would provide proof that the subtenant understands the terms and conditions of agreement and provides legal recourse for the initial tenant in the event the subtenant damages the property and/or fails to pay the rent to the initial tenant.
