A Louisiana sublease agreement conveys the terms and conditions of a rental arrangement as they apply to a sublessor (tenant on original lease) and a sublessee (or “subtenant”) renting residential property. This agreement is separate from the original residential lease agreement entered into by the landlord and sublessor, yet both the sublessor and sublessee must continue to act in accordance with the terms set forth in the original lease.
Signing a sublease agreement means that the sublessee will be responsible for paying all or a portion of the rent as well as utility payments, security deposits, and other fees. The landlord-tenant laws of Louisiana allow tenants to sublease their rented property as long as it is not specifically prohibited in the lease agreement.
