A good sample room rental agreement can be found on the Rocket Lawyer website. A well-written agreement clearly explains the rights and responsibilities of each party in the agreement and includes the terms of the residential lease between the original tenant and landlord, explains Rocket Lawyer.
The room rental agreement, also known as a sublease, is intended to protect each party’s rights and define the terms of the agreement including valid dates, payments and premises, states Rocket Lawyer. Room rental agreements are used when an individual rents a room from a person who is already renting the room from someone. The agreement is between the new tenant and the original tenant, but it usually requires the landlord’s approval.
