A Georgia room rental agreement is a legal document that outlines the terms and conditions between a principal tenant and a subtenant for renting a specific room within a residential property in the state. Before subleasing, they often need to obtain written permission from the landlord, and this permission is contingent upon the terms outlined in the original lease agreement.
The principal tenant is the one who initially signed the lease agreement with the landlord for the entire rental unit. The subtenant is the one who rents a specific room within the property from the principal tenant under the conditions specific to their arrangement.
