A Massachusetts sublease agreement is used by a tenant with an active lease to rent out their residence to another individual (the “sublessee”) for part or the remainder of the lease term. The contract sets out the conditions of the agreement, including the monthly rent, security deposit, utility fees, and termination date. Tenants will often sublease their property while traveling to cover their monthly payments and other rental costs. If the lease forbids subleasing or lists certain requirements, the tenant must follow these terms. The tenant remains responsible for paying rent on time and will be held accountable for any property damage or breach of the lease caused by the sublessee.
