Subletting, stabilized and free-market apts

Posted by Sandro on January 27, 1997 at 17:54:51:

Could someone confirm the following for me? I really would appreciate it.

In a rent-stabilized apartment, it seems I have the automatic right
to sublet,even if there is a clause prohibiting that in the lease.

In a free-market apartment, I have the right to sublet, but only with
the landlord's approval. This approval may not be "unreasonably"
withheld. If so, I can sublet anyway. If the landlord wants to take me
to housing court, he may.

Also, what constitutes a "reasonable" reason for a landlord denying my
sublet request?
