Minnesota Sub-Lease Agreement
Download a Minnesota sublease agreement, or roommate contract, that allows a person holding a lease for a property, sublessor, to engage with another individual, sublessee, to either rent partially or the entire space. Typically, a standard lease agreement in Minnesota will bar the act of subletting, if this is the case the sublessor will have to get the written permission from the landlord stating otherwise.
The sublessor will bear the liability for the sublessee’s actions. Meaning if they do not pay rent, cause damage to the premises, or break any other terms and conditions of the sublease or master lease, it is the responsibility of the landlord. Therefore the sublessor should review all potential subtenants with the rental application.
