Thanks for telling us Ithaca is upstate. Now, read your lease.

You signed the lease stating that the landlord could charge for assigning or subletting. You knew about this clause and agreed to it. Now that it might actually happen, you ask us what you can do. Didn't you see this coming ?

There is little point in going into further technicalities of Ithaca law or the type of contract you and your roommates live under. Go read your lease. And read the lease of the next apartment you get very carefully, BEFORE you sign it ! Leases are negotiable like everything else.

: Sorry I forgot, to say I live in Ithaca, New York. Which is upstate.

: : I live in a 4 bedroom apartment house and all 4 of us are responsible for the rent collectively. I wanted to have my girlfriend occupy my room for the rest of the lease, and I would move out, but still pay for her rent. That way the total number of people living in the house would still be 4 people. It is written in the lease that the landlord could charge me for assigning or subletting etc. Can the landlord charge me for using my right to have and occupant if I'm not actually living there? Please answer ASAP because I have to get another place fast because we're not allowed to have cats here and I need to find another apartment to keep my cat in. Thanks.
