Calling a sublease a roommate

Posted by Kathi M. on October 09, 1997 at 15:42:25:

OK, so what I'm trying to do is not quite legal, but I would appreciate some advice. I am vacating my rent-stabilized apartment 6 months before my lease expires. I do not trust my landlord to return my deposit, so I wish to "give" the lease to a friend. I am certain my landlord would not permit an assignment of the lease (he wants that 30%, and has also shown racist tendencies in the past) so I thought I could add my friend as a "roommate" and let him take over the lease by himself when it expires. Has anyone tried this? Or do you, Tenantnet, have any advice or comment?
