A Kansas sublease agreement is a contract used to establish the terms and conditions of a rental arrangement in which a sublessor (original tenant) leases all or part of their residential dwelling to a sublessee (new tenant). When a tenant is renting a residence from a landlord for a term of two (2) years or less (or under a tenancy at will or at sufferance), they are allowed to sublease that space with the landlord’s written permission unless the lease agreement forbids it. However, subleasing can occur without the landlord’s approval if the tenant has a lease exceeding a two-year term.
Both the sublessor and sublessee must comply with the articles contained in the original residential lease agreement. The sublessor will always be liable to the landlord for rent payments and damage to the property if anything should happen during the lease term.
