A Wyoming sublease agreement (also known as a sublet agreement) is a legal document used to officiate an agreement between a tenant of an apartment or rental, and a new tenant that will be replacing him or her. This period of time can range from one month to a year or longer. Once the sublease agreement begins, the new tenant will move into the rental and pay rent and live in the rental, abiding by the rules of tenancy just as the sublessor (the original tenant) did. Oftentimes, this agreement works well because subleased apartments are often furnished and provide a great option for both the sublessor and sublessee because it eases the process of moving in and out of the unit. One important fact to remember about these types of agreements is that the sublessee does not assume the same legal responsibility for the rental as the sublessor because he or she does not have a lease agreement with the landlord. If any late payments, property damage, or abandonment occurs, the sublessor will be held responsible.
Wyoming Tenant/Landlord law instructs tenants to obtain written permission from their landlord before proceeding with a sublease agreement.
