Commercial Sublease

Commercial Sublease

If you wish to sublease space to another business, this is the form you need.  You can use this form to establish a relationship with a subtenant if you want to:

  • turn over part of your space to another tenant while you continue to occupy the rest of the space
  • lease out all of your space for a while, but return to the space during the term of your original lease.

You can save and edit the form before you buy--just create a Nolo.com account. It's easy, free, and there's no obligation to buy anything. If you purchase the form, you'll be able to print, send, or download it.

Product Details

Use this form if you are leasing commercial property and want to turn over a portion of it to a subtenant, or need to rent out the entire space for a short time while you're away.

Important to Know

  • You will still be obligated to the terms of your original lease with your landlord -- even if your subtenant doesn't pay the rent owed to you.
  • Your lease most likely requires that you obtain permission from your landlord to sublease space -- this form includes a clause that refers to the landlord’s consent, for which you should use a separate form (Landlord’s Consent to Commercial Sublease)
  • If you want to obligate your subtenant to responsibilities not specified in this sublease, you may need to use a full-blown lease and modify it accordingly

If you plan to sublease all of your space and not return to it, use Assignment of Commercial Lease  instead.
