Washington Sublease Agreement Form


The Washington sublease agreement is most times performed when an individual needs to vacate a property that they are contractually obligated to rent. When a tenant breaks a lease, they could be facing some unfavorable consequences, such as having to pay substantial fees, hurting their credit score, making it more difficult to secure a rental in the future, and even having to encounter legal repercussions. But, if a sublease option is allowed, they can instead act as a secondary landlord and re-rent the premises to a third party for the remainder of the contract. Although there is a new tenant (known as the sub-tenant), the sublessor is still responsible for the terms of the primary lease agreement, so it is important that they sublease to a person they can trust will hold up their end of the bargain.
