A renting agreement is usually between the owner of an asset (like a home) and the party that wants to use the asset for a certain duration. In real estate law, sublease is an arrangement in which the lessee in a lease assigns the lease to a third party, thereby making the old lessee the sublessor, and the new lessee the sublessee.

A rental contract (also known as a lease) often forbids the lessee to sublease the property to a third party.
