Breaking a lease, found somone to take over, but landlord refuses

I have rented an apartment in Prince Georges county in Maryland and signed a standard 1 year lease. It's been about 4 months and due to health reasons, I need to move to Florida.
The lease says I can transfer the lease to someone else with written permission from the management. I found someone ready to take over my lease, but when I went to the management to find out the procedure, they said they would not do it. I pointed out the clause, she said that's only if they give me written permission and they would not do it. They have vacant units and they would rent out those.
The lease agreement does not allow sub-leasing, either. What can I do?
