You may wish to consult your attorney regarding rights and duties under your lease. In general, please note that
under a sublease agreement, the Principal Tenant (who signed the original rental agreement) normally remains
responsible to the Landlord for all terms and conditions of the lease. For example, if the Subtenant does not
pay rent or causes damages, the Principal Tenant remains liable to the Landlord for these damages. For these
reasons, it is recommended Principal Tenants require a security deposit from their Subtenant, and have the
Subtenant pay the rent to them rather than to the Landlord. The Principal Tenant stands in the relationship to
the subtenant as a landlord and has the right to terminate the tenancy of the Subtenant with proper legal notice.
Also note that this form of agreement anticipates that permission to sublet is required by the Landlord or his
agent and is valid only if signed by the Landlord.
