The Texas sublease agreement defines the conditions by which a subtenant is authorized to occupy property leased to a master tenant through a lease agreement. The initial tenant (the “sublessor”) is in charge of choosing a subtenant who they’re certain will pay rent on time and abide by the requirements stipulated in the master lease.
Any issues that transpire as a result of the subtenant’s behavior must be dealt with by the sublessor. For this reason, it is important to conduct a review of the subtenant’s background to avoid tenants with a subpar rental history. Furthermore, Texas law prohibits subleasing without the landlord’s approval; the sublessor must confer with the landlord before attempting to sublet their property to a new tenant.
