This refers to Real Property Law Sec. 226-b. Right to sublease or assign.
Can someone please translate the following passage marked below? I read it several times; still not sure if I understand the rules correctly. Thanks so much!
1. Unless a greater right to assign is conferred by the lease,
a tenant renting a residence may not assign his lease
without the written consent of the owner,
START TRANSLATION HERE: "which consent may
be unconditionally withheld without cause provided that the
owner shall release the tenant from the lease upon request
of the tenant upon thirty days notice if the owner
unreasonably withholds consent which release shall be the
sole remedy of the tenant." STOP TRANSLATION
If the owner reasonably withholds
consent, there shall be no assignment and the tenant shall
not be released from the lease.
