Nevada Sub-Lease Agreement
The Nevada sublease agreement is a form that lets a tenant that currently holds a lease with a landlord, referred to as a “master lease”, allows someone else to rent the same space through this contract. The new tenant, or sublessee, must follow the terms and conditions of the sublease and if they do not the sublessor, not the landlord, will be responsible for any potential eviction or collection. The sublessor, no matter how much rent the sublessee is paying, will remain required to pay the amount stated in the master lease.
Due to the sublessor possessing all responsibility for the sublessee, it is highly recommended that they make any potential subtenants fill-in the rental application to ensure they are creditworthy.
