A Mississippi sublease agreement is a contract that residential tenants can use to rent a part or all of the leased premises to another individual (the “sublessee”). The tenant (the “sublessor”) remains responsible for paying monthly rent to the landlord and will be accountable for the sublessee’s actions on the property. The original lease may contain specific requirements that subleases must fulfill, or it may prohibit them altogether. In most cases, the sublessor will need to obtain the landlord’s signed approval before a sublease can be executed. Once all parties have signed the document, the sublessor and sublessee will be bound to its terms.
