A North Dakota sublease agreement is a contract that allows a tenant of an existing lease (“sublessor”) to rent out all or a portion of their rental property to another tenant (“sublessee” or “subtenant”). North Dakota statutes do not prohibit subletting, but the original tenant’s lease may.
Your lease may have a clause that states whether the landlord will allow you to sublease their property. If the lease doesn’t explicitly state whether subletting is prohibited, you can ask your landlord for permission to sublease your apartment or home.
