You also left out of the very same e-mail posting what I had found in a string. And landlord can refuse based on occupancy law. Unfortunately, tenants don't have complete and absolute right to something they're leasing. You left that part out.
Also in reading about the mentions of the roommate law to the attachment I had, I noticed that relatives or friends of roommates have no succession rights.
: A landlord has the right to reasonably refuse an assignment or a subletting, but doesn't have the right to refuse a roommate, as long as the tenant complies with the roommate law (i.e., one tenant has the right to a roommate; two or more co-tenants can replace departing co-tenants with roommates on a on-for-one basis).
