Leases
Subleases and Similar Transactions

A sublease arrangement exists when the leased property is assigned to a third party by the original lessee and the original lease agreement remains in effect.

The new lessee becomes the primary obligor under the new lease agreement — and the original lessee may or may not be secondarily liable.

With cancellation of the original lease agreement, a new lessee is substituted through a new lease agreement.
