A Tennessee sublease agreement permits a tenant currently signed onto a lease to rent part or all of their rental property to another individual. The original tenant is referred to as the sublessor and the new tenant is called the subtenant. The sublease agreement must be consistent with the outlined terms in the original lease.
The original lease can state whether or not the tenant must obtain permission before subleasing. If the original lease contains no clause that forbids subletting nor does it specify that the tenant must ask permission, the tenant can sublease as they see fit without the landlord’s consent.
