Georgia Sublease Agreement

The Georgia Sublease Agreement is a form completed between the original tenant to a property (called the “sublessor”), and a tenant that will be living in the rental in place of the tenant (the “sublessee”) for the remainder of the lease. Georgia Law does not specifically state tenants do or do not have the right to sublet. If the lease does not explicitly state whether it is allowed or not, the safest bet for a tenant living in Georgia is to request permission from the landlord. Apart from receiving permission to sublet, subleasing is wholly a responsibility of the sublessor. If the sublessee damages the property or stops paying rent, it is on the sublessor to remedy the problem.
