The Tennessee sublease agreement allows the initial renter of residential property (sublessor) to re-rent part or all of their space to another individual (sublessee). With a sublease, the sublessor remains bound to the original lease terms and, therefore, must ensure that rent is paid on time and that the property isn’t damaged or misused by the new tenant. If a rental violation occurs while the sublessee occupies the property, the repercussions of such actions are charged to the sublessor. It is often necessary for the sublessor to obtain the landlord’s approval before executing a sublease.
