Connecticut Sublease Agreement

A Connecticut sublease agreement defines the terms and conditions for which a subtenant is held accountable while subletting a rental unit from the original tenant. The original tenant (“sublessor”) will have a residential lease agreement in place with the landlord, and this sublease must be created so as not to contradict any of the provisions of the original lease agreement. If the landlord permits subleasing, the sublessor remains liable to the landlord for the rent and is responsible for the condition of the rental unit. Because the landlord only has an agreement with the original tenant, all rent payments, deposits, and other fees paid by the subtenant will go to the sublessor, who will in turn transfer the funds to the landlord.
