: : : 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.
: Don't be so sure. This is an unregulated unit, so the normal sublet rule don't apply.
actually: the 'normal' rules apply to everyone, rent stab tenants have extra rules.
searched on 'sublet': read this: http://tenant.net/Tengroup/Metcounc/Mar96/sublet.html
or this: http://tenant.net/Rights/tenguide.html from the attorney general
then read the law: Property Law §226-b, RSC §2525.
