Texas Sub-Lease Agreement
The Texas sublease agreement is a document to be filled in by a tenant (“sublessor”) and another individual (“sublessee”) seeking to rent the space during the period the sublessor has the residential unit under contract with the landlord.
According to 91.005 the tenant is not allowed to sublet the property unless it specifically states in the agreement that it is allowed or the tenant gets written permission from the landlord that it is permissible. The tenant should understand that they will bear the complete responsibility of any sublessee’s such as if rent is not paid or if there is damage made on the property. Therefore all potential sublessee’s should be screened with a rental application and a security deposit should be collected.
