: Subletting is governed by Real Property Law section 226(b) which means if you
: follow the procedures (we have fact sheets on this on the web site, do a search)
: then you can sublet no matter what the lease says. Rent Control tenants do
: not have a similar right as they don't have leases as all.
: The same provision apply to both rent stab and free market. Landlords will
: take tenants to court to harass and intimidate and they know the judges
: are on their sides most of the time (or just plain lazy).
I'm sorry to barrage you with questions, but I've one more:
Since the landlord must respond to your sublet request (mailed via
registered/certified mail) within 30 days, doesn't this hinder your
ability to sign a sublet right away with a potential sub-tenant? If you
have to wait for your landlord's "reasonable" consent, then it seems
that it wouldn't allow you to sign the sublease on-the-spot.
