Rhode Island Sublease Agreement Template
The Rhode Island sublease agreement allows a tenant that is under a rental contract to lease their rented space, or a portion thereof, to another individual (sublessee). The original tenant, or sublessor, is fully responsible for the sublessee and must adhere to all State laws just as a landlord would with a lessee. Therefore, a rental application should be required for all potential sub-tenants. Furthermore, the original tenant must always obtain permission from the landlord. The sublessor will be held liable for any breach of contract and is responsible for evicting the sublessee should it come to that.
