this is mostly true - what you were supposed to have done notified the landlord in writing, via certified mail. He can't refuse the sublet. If he fails to answer in 30 days, that is an approval. You can sublet as much as 2/3 of your lease.

: Manhattan, Lower East Side, Stabilized. 25 apartments in an old tenament (early 1900's).

: I am working freelance out of town and my job has extended to about 9 mo's away from NYC. I have been sub-letting to a friend at no extra cost on top of my NYC rent. We got a letter from our landlords attorney saying my friend had to be out in 15 days or we would lose our lease. Do we have a right to sublet to him while we're away if it is under a year and we are not charging any more than our regular rent? Can he be kicked out?
