A Michigan sublease agreement is a rental arrangement between two (2) parties whereby a tenant (the “sublessor”) rents out all or a part of their residence to another party (the “sublessee”). A sublease must be made in accordance with the sublessor’s original lease. In some cases, the lease may require the landlord’s signed approval for a sublease to be valid. Even if the sublessor isn’t occupying the property, they will be responsible for the sublessee’s actions on the premises and ensuring that rent is paid on time. Therefore, it is recommended that the sublessor thoroughly vets sublessees prior to signing this rental contract.
