New York Sublease | Roommate Agreement Template
The New York sublease and roommate agreements are very popular within the city and among university students as they allow a person who already has a lease with a landlord to rent the same space to another individual. There are two (2) ways to set up this type of contract: a standard sublease agreement where a sublessee takes over an entire space, and a roommate agreement where the tenant seeks another person to rent a portion of the space. In either case, the tenant (sublessor) should be aware that they will be held to the same landlord-tenant laws as a property owner. Therefore, they will be subject to the exposure of any non-payment of rent, damage, and possible eviction of the sublessee. For these reasons, it is highly recommended that the sublessor screen any potential sub-tenants with the rental application.
