Can my tenants sublease to other tenants without my approval?

You may set the maximum number of occupants for your unit in the original lease.

If your tenant requests to sublease their unit, you may refuse their request in writing within 14 days of receiving said request. You must state the reason for your refusal, which may not be based on the proposed additional occupant’s lack of creditworthiness, if the occupant will not be directly paying rent to you. If you do not respond to your tenant’s request within 14 days, their request will be deemed approved. The sublease must be replacing a departing tenant(s) and only on a one-for-one basis.
