A Minnesota Sublease Agreement allows another person to overtake an original tenant’s lease by moving into the property while paying the rent and agreeing to terms of the original lease. If the original lease does not prohibit subleasing, than the tenant may sublet the property. However, according to Minnesota Statutes 504B.181, the tenant must disclose the subleasing of the property with at least 30 days written notice.
The original tenant must be cautious and select a subtenant they can trust, because trust will be a major factor considering that the original tenant will still be held liable if rent goes unpaid or if the property is damaged. An executed sublease agreement should include the signatures of the tenant, subtenant, and the landlord.
