Does the residential lease terms allow you to sub-lease? The lease agreement identifies who is originally on the lease. So, it's best to carefully read the policies. Unsure if the aforementioned information is actually considered legal advice, maybe more as to real estate info? Now, if you are asking how to proceed and make a claim that the land lords refusal is illegal, then you need to get an attorney. Good luck and have a wonderful day. Re-read Mark, Michael, and Barbera's proclamation.
