The Maine Sublease Agreement enables a tenant to sublet a leased property to another prospective tenant, know as a subtenant. This agreement is generally not favored by landlords but it does come into use when apartments with 2 or more roommates on the lease move out.
Subleasing is only allowed if the landlord agrees to it in writing. If it is in writing, the landlord can not withheld the tenant from doing so without good reason. In the state of Maine, the original tenant is still responsible for the entire rent, which is due under the lease and for any damage by the people subletting or their guests.
