The Vermont sublease agreement is a form that authorizes a leaseholder (the sublessor) to re-rent the space they lease to another person (the sublessee) for the remainder of the original lease term or a portion thereof. The sublessee must abide by the same rental conditions as the sublessor, although only the sublessor’s name appears on the original lease.
The sublessor remains liable for the property and must ensure that rent payments are made on time. Vermont landlords are permitted to deny a sublease if the right to refuse such an agreement is written in the original lease. In all cases, the landlord’s permission should be obtained before signing a binding contract with a third-party renter.
