The New Jersey sublet agreement is a legally binding agreement between an existing tenant (« subtenant ») and a new tenant (« subtenant »). In return for periodic periodic payments for the subtenant`s rental commitment, the subtenant has access to all or part of the leased property. The New Jersey Sublease Agreement Form is a legally binding contract between the original tenant (Sublessor) and a new tenant (Sublessee). Subletting gives the subtenant the right to share the leased premises or to take it over entirely by the original tenant. The tenant would pay the rent directly to the first tenant, while the subtenant would assume responsibility for the timely payment of the rent to the lessor. The landlord would hold the first tenant directly responsible for the rent as well as for all damages, including any damage that would have been caused by the tenant. Unless otherwise stated, the original tenant must obtain permission from the landlord to arrange a sublease to another person. A sublease agreement is intended to assist a tenant who is unable to remain on the premises of the property he is renting for part of the term of his lease. . . .
