Pennsylvania Sublease Agreement

The Pennsylvania Sublease Agreement serves as a secondary agreement that is formulated between a leaseholder and a new tenant (called the “subtenant”) to lock-in the subtenant’s obligation to pay rent, any required utilities, and any other rules written in the original lease agreement. The sublease form found below is a template – allowing changes to be made to conform to any unique subleasing situations. However, to ensure legality, conditions containing legal language should only be altered with guidance from a licensed realtor or attorney.


Pennsylvania Subletting Laws

The Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 leaves it up to the signed lease (with the landlord) as to whether subletting is permitted or not. If nothing is stated in the agreement regarding subletting, it is assumed that tenants can sublease their rental.
