My lease, like most, says that subleasing is not allowed without manager's consent. I came in on a sublease and later let the manager know I was planning on subleasing. She just declared she will not accept any subleasing any more. Does anyone know if this is legal for her to do this? It's breaking faith, but not breaking the literal contract. FYI, I live in Missouri.
So I've done the math, and if my job pays me $750 a month less, and uses that money to pay my rent, I actually end up about $150 ahead. [more inside]

My friend, renting a room in a house, has found that the people he was renting from didn't actually own the house. He came home to find an eviction notice on his door and the locks changed.

Can I somehow piggy back on my roommates rights to break the lease as of the Service members Civil Relief Act (SCRA)?
One of my roommates is in the military, he just got noticed that he is going to be redeployed in May/June. Our other roommate recently moved out and we are subletting her room for her.
