A Kentucky sublease agreement is a rental contract that enables a tenant (referred to as a “sublessor”) to rent out all or a portion of their rental unit to another tenant (“sublessee” or “subtenant”). The rental unit in question is being leased through an agreement signed by the sublessor and the landlord of the property.
The terms and conditions of the original lease agreement must be adhered to, and none of the sublease agreement provisions can contradict or interfere with the original lease. The sublessee is liable to the sublease and the sublessor; however, the sublessor remains accountable to the landlord for all rent payments and the condition of the premises. Subleasing is permitted in Kentucky as long as the landlord provides written permission.
