Arizona Sublease Agreement


An Arizona sublease agreement gives a tenant a means of renting an already rented property to another person. After finding a new tenant, the original tenant (the sublessor) will draft the agreement, using it to establish how much rent the new tenant (the sublessee) will have to pay, along with the length of the lease, utility requirements, and more.

Even after the sublessee moves into the unit, the sublessor will still be bound to the original lease signed with the landlord. If the property were to be damaged by the sublessee, for example, the sublessor would be responsible for getting the unit fixed. This highlights the importance of finding a quality, trustworthy sublessee. In the state of Arizona, there are no rules regarding subleasing, although landlords can include provisions that either permit it or disallow it.
