Question:

We rent an apartment which we want to keep over the summer months and return to next fall, but none of us will be around to live here during the summer. Can we sublet it if we keep paying the rent to the landlord?

     Yes, if you get written consent from your landlord to sublet. A landlord can only refuse on reasonable grounds and must give you the reasons in writing. What is reasonable will differ from case to case. If your landlord does not answer your request within 14 days, you are entitled to assume consent has been given. Your landlord cannot charge you a fee for requesting consent to sublet.
