Washington Sub-Lease Agreement
In accordance with Chapter 59.18 RCW the Washington sublease agreement is for the renting of space, either a part of or whole, from a tenant to another person. The tenant will be acting as the sublessor and should always check with the landlord, out of good relations, to let them know that a sublet is occurring.
The sublessor should understand that in a sublet situation they will always be responsible for the new tenant, or sublessee. This is especially common with paying rent and if they leave any damage to the premises. Therefore the tenant should always screen any individuals with the rental application to check their employment and to verify their monthly income.
