New York Sublease Agreement

In New York and NYC, the act of subleasing can be a life saver – allowing those that will be temporarily leaving their rented apartment (or home for outside of the city) to introduce a new tenant, who will take over the monthly payments in exchange for the right to live in the property. To efficiently arrange this, the New York Sublease Agreement found below is a legally binding contract that records the timeframes, duties, and rules that the new tenant is mandated to abide by until its expiration. In NYC, landlords cannot prohibit subleasing unless a valid reason exists (only applies to privately-owned apartments).
