I'm subletting the apartment for the same rental rate I pay--no profit.
I quit my job and will not return, I'm relocating permanently for another
job. I merely need to pay for an apartment which I will not reside in,
but to which I am still lease-bound.

I prefer to assign the lease. I wrote to the landlord asking if I could do this,
but they haven't responded. What is the difference between a sublease and an
assignment? Why are landlords so terrified of assignments and prefer subleases?
If I push the assignment, will the landlord let me out of the lease?

If I get it in advance writing that the landlord refuses to allow a broken-up
sublease, would this be sufficient evidence of a refusal? Or would I need to
go through the whole process of applying for a sublease through first-class mail
, yadda yadda yadda........

Also, my landlord states that the request for a sublet must be mailed at least
30 days prior to any sublease, however, NY State Real Prop. Law, Sec. 226b, does
specify a time period, only that the request be certified mail. Is this legal?

I live in a multi-unit building in upstate New York.

Thank you for any comments,
