Subletting a Property: Complete Guide and Facsimile of the Contract

Subleasing a property is a common practice, especially in university cities or large urban centers where rental costs can be high. This article will provide detailed guidance on how to sublet a property, the types of subletting, the necessary documents, the costs involved, and will include a facsimile model of a
subletting agreement.

Definition of Subletting

Subletting is an agreement in which the tenant (who rents the property from the owner) grants the use of all or part of the property to another person, called a subcontractor, in exchange for a subletting fee.

In this scenario, the conductor becomes a subtenant while the person occupying the building becomes a subconductor. It is essential to verify that the main rental agreement allows for subletting and to comply with local laws

Is it Legal to Sublet?

The practice of subletting is legal, as long as it is not expressly prohibited by the original rental agreement. Article 1594 of the Civil Code states that subletting is generally allowed, unless prohibited by the main lease agreement

Types of Subletting

There are two main types of subletting: partial and total.

Partial subletting: The tenant subleases only part of the property, such as a room, while keeping the rest for himself. For example, a tenant who rents an apartment with several rooms may decide to sublet a room while continuing to live in other
parts of the building.

Total subletting: The tenant subleases the entire property, completely transferring use and occupancy to the subconductor. This is common when the tenant has to move temporarily for work or other reasons

Required Documents and Procedure

Before subrenting, it is essential to collect the necessary documents and follow a well-defined procedure:

  1. Communication to the Lessor: The tenant must inform the owner of the intention to sublet by registered letter.
  2. Drafting of the Subletting Agreement: This document must include:
    • Sublocator and subconductor data
    • Duration of the sublease
    • Amount of monthly fee and payment date
    • Liabilities and liabilities of landlord, sublessor and subconductor
    • Withdrawal terms and times
    • Signed agreement of the owner of the property
  3. Contract Registration: The contract must be registered with the Revenue Agency within 30 days of signing, using the RLI model and proof of payment through the F24 Elide model. For non-EU citizens, it is necessary to fill out the hospitality declaration within 48 hours of the subconductor entering

Subletting Contract Costs

The main cost associated with subletting is the registration tax, which amounts to 2% of the agreed subletting fee. There may be additional costs for legal advice and contract customizations. Income deriving from subletting must be declared as ‘Different Income’ in the 730 tax return model, indicating code 10 in line
