In Reply to: Can I sublet the coop apt I'm renting? posted by Terri on March 13, 2001 at 00:38:43:
Section 226-b(3) of the Real Property Law specifically excludes co-ops from the law that give tenants in buildings with four or more units the right to sublet.
In your case, the board of directors gave the shareholder (your landlord) permission to sublet to you, even though not required to do so by Section 226-b of the Real Property Law.
But even when a tenant has the right to sublet, there is no further right for the sub-tenant to sub-sublet.
: Apt in Manhattan, building built 1924, co-op as of 1989, 185 units, I signed a 1 year lease on 1/01/01
: Would like to sublet apt for 3-6 months while I'm out of town for same rent I'm paying ($1,500). Management company said the Board would not approve a sublet by a renter. Can the Board reasonably refuse this if I find a subletter who can meet the same acceptance criteria that I met? Any advice appreciated.
