Whats the scam?.....
you want an apartment you dont reside in but you have in interest in the lease?
Hiding out from your parole officer?...
: 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,
