Most agreements allow you to sublet only with the landlord's
written consent. Some landlords will accept the rent directly from
the subtenant. But you are still responsible for paying the rent,
unless the subtenant's name replaced yours on the agreement or a
new agreement is written. The landlord's refusal to accept a
subtenant must be reasonable.

-The lease does explicitly say that they reserve the right not to sublet the apt. They suggest that to bring someone in, I should go through their so-called procedure on moving out (w/ 250 fee) then bring the potential resident to their leasing offices to begin a new contract (another year lease for new resident?). I'm not certain if this is proper under CA law, or if their cancellation policies as a whole is enforceable under law. Still digging for answers, but as usual any thoughts are certainly welcome. Thanks
