An Oregon sublease agreement is a rental contract between two (2) parties that allows a tenant (the “sublessor”) to rent out property they’re leasing from their landlord to a third party (the “sublessee”). This type of arrangement is used by tenants to help supplement living costs, to fill their tenancy while they are away, or to complete the term of their lease.
A roommate contract is separate from the sublessor’s agreement with their landlord, and they will remain accountable for the terms of the master lease. State law requires all subleases to be drafted as written agreements, prohibits subleases that violate the terms of the tenant’s lease, and permits landlords to terminate subleases with thirty (30) days’ notice.
