The Virginia sublease agreement is conducted when an active renter would like to lease the property that they currently occupy to a third party. This is common with lessees who would like to relocate but do not want the negative impact of violating a rental contract. Keep in mind, this is only possible if the original lease sanctions it or if the landlord provides a written notice of approval. If permitted, the document should clarify the sublessee’s move-in & move-out date, the price of their periodic payments, and the total value of the security deposit. Once signed, the original tenant will take on the role of the landlord but is still responsible to uphold the terms of the primary lease agreement. With that said, sublessors should carefully select an occupant that they feel is reliable.
