Document Summary

The term subleasing is the act of renting out the whole or part of the rented premises to a third party known as the “Sublessee”. The tenant or “Sublessor” must obtain a prior written consent from the landlord to execute this agreement.


It is important to note that the Sublessor remains liable to the landlord for the terms under the lease agreement.

The term of the sublease agreement must not exceed the term of the lease agreement, this means that each party holds rights and obligations till the time the original lease agreement remains valid.

Just as the sublessor must obtain written consent from the landlord to lease the premises, the same applies on the sublessee.

1.     Premises
