Maine Sublease Agreement Template
The Maine sublease agreement (also called the “roommate agreement”) lets a tenant who has a current rental contract (called the “sublessor”) with the property owner/manager rent out space in the rental unit to another individual (called the “sublessee”). This arrangement may be either to share said space or to rent it outright to the sublessee. Typically, a standard lease does not allow the act of subletting by a tenant; if this is the case the tenant will have to seek the written permission from the landlord. If the original tenant, or sublessor, is having issues with their tenant, or sublessee, they should bear in mind that they will bear the full responsibility regarding monthly payments and damages. Therefore, it is advised that any sublessee being considered undergo screening through the rental application.
