The Nebraska Sublease Agreement is an addendum to an existing lease that will allow the current tenant to rent out all or part of the property they are renting to another party. This is typically used when the original tenant wishes to acquire a roommate after the original lease has already been signed. In this type of agreement the original tenant is known as the sublessor and the new tenant is known as the sublessee.
In Nebraska, a tenant is permitted to sublease unless the landlord or lease explicitly forbids it. It may still be polite to gain the landlord’s written permission, but it is not legally required in Nebraska. Regardless of the terms of the sublease, a sublessor is still required to ensure that the original lease is upheld. A sublessor should probably require that the sublessee complete the Rental Application Form, as if the sublessee violates the original lease, the sublessor could be evicted alongside the sublessee.
A sublease will typically be bound by the same laws as a regular lease. All of Nebraska’s lease laws can be found in Nebraska Revised Code, Title 76-1401 to 76-1449.
