My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: CA
Before signing a year-long lease agreement on my current home, I had come to an oral agreement with the landlord that he will let me sublet 2 other bedrooms in the house.
The landlord's only condition at the time was that he get to review the new sub-tenant's credit report/history, so I happily agreed.
A few months in and now am looking to find some sub-tenants, but my landlord is saying that the owner would not want us to sublet but is willing to do the following with conditions:
Create a separate lease agreement between the new tenants and the landlord, while having me be responsible for providing the landlord the full security deposit (and the new tenants would pay their portion to me as they move in and out). I would also be responsible for the condition of the home in the end (since I would be there the longest).
I am just wondering if there is anything I need to be concerned about with these set of conditions? I will be drafting up a rental agreement for all new tenants.
