Key Points included in a Sublet Agreement

What is a Sublet Agreement?

Under a sublet agreement, the tenant of commercial property grants a subtenant the right to use the rented premises or part thereof against a rent, usually for a defined time. 

It is widely used for a variety of commercial property, from industrial warehouses to office spaces. 

The main tenant can optimize the use of the rented premises, when it is temporarily not using it, or some spare room has been freed to due to an unforeseen turn of events. The landlord, as a rule, may not object to the subletting of the rented property, unless it has good reason to do so. In practice, this could be the case when the subtenant, for example, makes a different use of the property or the tenant charges a higher rent than agreed under the main rental agreement. 

Further, the main tenant is liable to the landlord for any damages arising out of the subletting.
