Right to Sublet

Utah’s state laws do not explicitly address subleasing. Therefore, a lease will determine whether or not a tenant can sublet. Typically, a lease will state that the tenant must get their landlord’s permission before doing so. If the lease does not contain language pertaining to subleasing, the tenant should contact their landlord for more information.

In the event that a landlord’s permission is required, consider using a Landlord Consent Form.

Short-Term (Lodgings) Tax

Utah state law defines a short-term rental (STR) as a residential unit (or any portion of one) that is offered for occupancy for fewer than 30 consecutive days.[1] Revenues generated from short-term rentals are subject to state and local taxes.
