A Mississippi sublease agreement helps the original tenant (the “sublessor”) rent out all or part of their property to another person (the “subtenant”). The sublessor is responsible for the actions of their subtenant and for paying monthly rent, keeping the property in good condition, and adhering to the terms of the original lease agreement.
The landlord-tenant laws in Mississippi do not specifically address subleasing, so you’ll have to refer to your original lease for clarification. If the lease doesn’t mention that subletting is banned, you can legally sublease as long as you abide by all other terms and conditions in the original lease agreement. While subleasing in Mississippi is possible without the landlord’s permission, it’s always a good idea to let them know beforehand.
