A Montana sublease agreement lets a tenant rent the property to a new tenant (or “subtenant”). In this document, the original tenant becomes the sublessor, and the new tenant becomes the subtenant. A sublease agreement requires the written permission of the original landlord to come into effect.
It also holds both the actual tenant and the subtenant to the terms of the original lease agreement. The original tenant is liable if something is damaged or the subtenant fails to pay rent on time. A sublessor must honor the terms of the sublease agreement (as well as the original lease) and follow all Montana laws regarding the eviction process, security deposits, and all other landlord-tenant matters.
