: I live in an unregulated rental building, 3 units in all. The landlord refuses to cooperate regarding a sublease or sublet situation. I am not interested in renewing the lease when it finishes, 6/30/2000. If I do the illegal sublet, can someone advise me on how I should proceed to best shield me from potential liability?
Basically, if, after you follow the legally required procedures, the landlord unreasonably refuses a sublet, he has waived the right to collect the balance of your lease (of course, he might sue you and you'd have to fight in court).
Use the search feature here and also on TenantNet Home with the words 'sublet law': you'll get a lot more info, including the law itself.
