help! subletesque drama

Posted by pam on September 04, 2001 at 16:47:51:

i live in a rent subsidized apartment in upper manhattan and just signed a 2 year lease. i have to leave the state for approx. 11 months and have arranged for a friend to stay in my place and pay the rent (and nothing more, although the utilities are now in her name). i let the super know that a friend would be staying for a couple of months out of courtesy and he told the management, who have now asked for the keys saying they understand i'm moving out. although my lease prohits subleases, i understand from that this is illegal in a building my size. i realize the management is trying to strong arm me out of the apartment. should i continue in the line that my friend is staying for a couple of months, or initiate a sublet (although i'm not sure of its validity). i am coming back in less than a year and will be responsible for the rent. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
