An Ohio sublease agreement is a rental contract that residential tenants can use to rent out their leased property to a sublessee. The contract is for a limited term, usually to keep the rental unit occupied and paid while the tenant is unable to reside on the premises. Under the agreement, the sublessee must pay the sublessor monthly rent and utilities. In turn, the tenant will be responsible for supplying the landlord with the payments and ensuring that the master lease is respected.
In addition to the rental price and expenses, the contract will relay the security deposit amount and term of the arrangement. While a sublease is separate from the original lease with the landlord, it must be made in accordance with the lease’s terms and conditions which may require the landlord’s written permission to sublease or prohibit subleasing altogether.
