Wyoming Sublease Agreement

The Wyoming Sublease Agreement is an agreement used to alter an existing lease. It allows the current tenant of a property (known as the sublessor) to rent out their property to another party (known as the sublessee). This is typically used when the sublessor wishes to acquire a roommate not included on the original lease, or wants to leave the property early without breaking their lease.

Wyoming has no laws specifically governing subletting, and as such the rules for subletting will be explicitly laid out by the lease itself. Typically a lease will discourage or outright forbid subletting, and as such the sublessor will have to get written permission from the landlord.

Note that, regardless of the terms of the sublease, the sublessor is still responsible for maintaining the terms of the original lease. If the sublessee fails to pay rent or otherwise violates the original lease the sublessor could face eviction alongside them. As such it is highly recommended that the sublessee be required to complete the Rental Application Form before signing a sublease agreement.

As Wyoming has no laws specifically regarding subleasing, a sublease will be governed by the same laws as a normal lease, which can be found in Wyoming State Laws, Chapter 1-21-1201 to 1-21-1211.
