Deed of Sublease Law and Legal Definition

A deed of sublease could refer to a document by which a tenant or lessee sublets a part or all of leased premises to another person. The right of a tenant or lessee to sublet largely depends upon the terms of the original lease. If the lease is silent regarding the rights of the lessee or tenant to sublease, it is generally accepted that the tenant or lessee may sublease. However, if the terms of the original lease state that the premises may not be sublet then it cannot be.
