California Sublease Agreement

The California Sublease Agreement allows the current tenant of a property to bring in a new tenant that either lives in the property instead of the original tenant or along with them. In California, there are no laws dictating subleasing, rather, it is completely dependent on what is stated in the original lease agreement. Tenants looking to sign a sublease agreement will commonly find it restricted in their original lease; to remedy this, request permission from the landlord with a written document. If the landlord doesn’t respond within fourteen (14) days, it is assumed that the landlord gave you permission. Even after signing a sublease contract with the new subtenant, it is the original tenant’s responsibility to ensure the rental is not damaged, rent is paid on time, and that the conditions of the agreement are followed.
