Tenant: What is the difference between subletting and assigning?
Subletting occurs when a Tenant temporarily moves out of the premises and rents their room or unit to a subtenant. The rules and regulations of the Lease Agreement continue to apply to the Tenant. Therefore, the Tenant will continue to pay their monthly rent and care for any damages caused by negligence or abuse. In this scenario, the Subtenant becomes the responsibility of the Tenant. The Tenant must receive the Landlord's written consent to proceed with a sublet.
Assigning occurs when a Tenant permanently moves out of the rented premises and transfers their agreement to a new Tenant. The Tenant must receive the Landlord's written consent in this situation as well
