The South Carolina sublease agreement is a contract between a tenant and a subtenant (or “sublessee”), granting the subtenant the right to rent the tenant’s property for a fixed-term. Subleasing allows the tenant to travel or seek residence elsewhere while avoiding the full cost of paying rent for a unit they’re not occupying. The subtenant will be bound to the requirements of both the sublease and the original lease agreement. Should they fail to uphold their duties, the original tenant will be solely responsible for remediating the situation. Furthermore, state law requires tenants to obtain the landlord’s written approval before executing a sublease agreement.
