An Arizona sublease agreement is a legal contract that allows a tenant (or “sublessor”) to rent out a property they currently lease to a new tenant (or “sublessee”). The document does not override the original lease.
The original tenant is ultimately responsible for any damage and ensuring the landlord receives rent on time. If the sublessee breaches the sublease, the original tenant is held liable.
You should check your original lease agreement to see if you can sublet your apartment. It’s recommended that a tenant receive permission from their landlord before subletting in Arizona.
