Georgia Sublease Agreement


A Georgia sublease agreement is a legal document that allows a tenant to rent out all or part of their rental property to another tenant (the “subtenant”) for a period of time. It outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the tenant and the subtenant, including the rental amount, the length of the agreement, and the tenant’s responsibility for repairs and maintenance. The agreement should also include a notice of the tenant’s right to terminate the sublease at any time.
