Refusing a Sublet?

Posted by Colleen on September 19, 1997 at 17:01:07:

I find myself in a position where I need to sublet my apartment due to
a change in employment. I found a subletter to take over my half of the
rent ( I live with one other person.) I had contacted my landlord about
arranging for a sublet and he had given me a verbal ok - so I was setting
up the sublease and I spoke with them again and now they are saying they
will not approve a sublet. I have read the tenant landlord guidelines where
it states that a landlord may not 'unreasonably with hold consent.' Can
some give me a little feed back as to what is a reasonable reason and what
is an unreasonable one - at the moment I have been told no reason why
it would be refused just that it would be - so before I pursue it further
I would like to know the 'general lines.' If 'general line exist'.
Thank you.
