A Wisconsin Sublet Agreement is a modification to an existing lease, to allow a current tenant to rent out all or part of their property to another party. In this sort of arrangement, the current tenant is known as the sublessor and the party they are subletting their property to is known as the sublessee.
As Wisconsin has no laws specifically governing subletting, all of the rules pertaining to them will be spelled out in the lease itself. Unless the lease specifies that subletting is allowed, the tenant will have to obtain written permission from the landlord. As the sublessor is still responsible for making sure the original lease is upheld, they may want the sublessee to complete the Rental Application Form. If the sublessee breaks the lease in any way, the sublessor could be responsible for evicting them, or could face eviction alongside them.
As there are no statutes governing subletting in Wisconsin, a Sublet Agreement will be governed by the same laws as a normal lease. All of Wisconsin’s lease laws can be found in Wisconsin State Code, Chapter 134
