What is a sublease and is it legal in New Jersey?

A sublease is the re-renting of property by an existing tenant to a new third party for a portion of the tenant’s existing lease contract.

Subleasing may or may not be allowed under the conditions of the original lease, and it may be subject to extra restrictions as imposed by the jurisdiction. Even if a sublet is permissible, the original tenant is still responsible for the lease agreement's responsibilities, such as monthly rent payment.
