Arizona Sublease Agreement

Updated on August 15, 2023

The Arizona sublease agreement is a legal document that allows a tenant (the “Sublessor”) to rent their leased property to another individual (the “Sublessee”). This agreement is particularly useful when the original tenant needs to move out but still has time left on their lease. It allows the original tenant to cover their rent while providing a home for another individual.

Lease Terms and Financials

The agreement outlines the terms of the sublease, including the start and end dates, the amount of rent to be paid by the Sublessee, and the due date for payments. The Sublessee may also be required to pay a security deposit, which can be used to cover any damages or unpaid rent at the end of the lease term. The agreement also specifies the rules for guests, stating that the Sublessee is not permitted to have anyone other than themselves live in the premises for the lease term, and guests cannot stay any longer than two days at a time unless approved by the Sublessor.

Utilities and Property Rules

The Sublessee is responsible for certain utilities, including electricity, water, trash collection, cable/internet, and heat. The agreement also outlines rules for smoking and parking. The Sublessee is not allowed to sublease the premises or assign the agreement without the prior written consent of the Sublessor.

Legal Provisions and Governing Law

The agreement includes several legal provisions, such as the conditions under which the Sublessor or Sublessee can terminate the agreement and the procedures for handling disputes. The Sublessee agrees to surrender and deliver the premises in the same condition as they were at the beginning of the term, with reasonable wear and tear accepted. The agreement is governed by the laws of the state of Arizona, and any changes to the agreement must be made in writing and signed by both parties.
