A Utah Sublease Agreement is a legal agreement that allows the current tenant of a property to lease out all or part of the property they are renting to another party. While subleasing, the current tenant of a property is called the sublessor, and the party they are leasing it to is called the sublessee.
Under Utah state law, a tenant is always allowed to sublease their property. However, regardless of the terms of a sublease agreement, the sublessor is still responsible for making sure that the original terms of the lease are upheld. If the sublessee violates the lease, both the sublessor and sublessee could face eviction. As such, it is highly recommended that the sublessee either be a known party to the sublessor or be required to fill out the Rental Application Form.
A sublease is subject to all the same laws and statutes as a normal lease. All of Utah’s rental laws can be found in Utah State Code, Title 57.
