Ohio SubLet Agreement
The Ohio sublease agreement is a real estate document used by tenants of property that have already signed a lease agreement with a landlord, and would like to rent the same space to someone else. The sublessor is required to obtain permission from the landlord if subletting is not an allowable use in the original lease contract.
The sublessor, or individual re-renting the space, should be aware that they will be held responsible for any and all actions made on behalf of the sublessee. This is especially true in the case of not paying rent, damage on the premises by the sublessee, and vacating the space under the sublease at the proper time. Furthermore if an eviction is necessary, the sublessor will be responsible for all costs and any damages made to the landlord.
The sublessor must disclose to the sublessee if the property contains lead paint by checking with the local authorities to see when the unit was built. If it was before 1978, then the sublessee must be given the disclosure form.
