Why Do You Need A Sublease Agreement?
There are many reasons why you might need a sublease agreement. For example, you may need to sublet your property if you are moving to a new location and want to keep your old property as an investment. Or, you may need to sublet your property if you are having financial difficulties and can no longer afford the rent. Whatever the reason, a sublease agreement can protect your rights and interests as the tenant of the property.
