Updated June 03, 2022

A Vermont sublease agreement is a rental contract in which a current tenant (sub-lessor) and a new sub-tenant (sub-lessee) arrange for the subletting of a property belonging to a third-party owner. Whether a rented property can be sublet is contingent upon the master (original) lease between the sub-lessor and the property owner/manager. The master lease should have alluded to the property owner either granting or barring a sublet arrangement. If no such item was included, however, the sub-lessor may seek express written consent from the landlord; the same method can be used in case the property owner changes their mind or permits one notable exception. Upon entering a sublease contract, any damages or missed payments caused by the sub-lessee will be the liability of the sub-lessor. Therefore, the sub-lessor must act as a landlord in relation to the sub-lessee when enforcing tenancy-related regulations. For instance, if the sub-lessee causes any damages or misses a scheduled payment, the sub-lessor must seek retribution or issue penalties in accordance with the sublease and master lease conditions.
