A Vermont sublease agreement is a legal contract between the original tenant (sublessor) and a third party known as a subtenant. The sublease allows the subtenant to rent all or part of the property from the original tenant.
Vermont regulations allow tenants to sublet the property to a subtenant with the landlord’s permission. Note that a landlord may not unreasonably deny a tenant’s request to sublet the property unless subletting is prohibited in the original lease agreement. The tenant should request written notice from the landlord to allow the sublease, and the landlord has 30 days to provide approval.
