Is it legal for my landlord to do this?

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.

Being overcharged in an illegal sublet in a rent-controlled apartment. No lease. What do?

I've been living in a month-to-month, no-lease sublet in Manhattan since January. I just found out that' it's a NYCHA rent-controlled apartment, and i'm paying way more than my 'share' of the monthly rent (also, i'm pretty sure subletting a rent-controlled apartment is illegal.) Clearly i'm going to be moving out ASAP. What else should I do? Do I have grounds for financial recoupment? [more inside]

What if my landlord isn't cashing my rent checks?

I rent a house in a fairly nice part of town. My landlord has owned this house for more than thirty years - the mortgage has long since been paid off. He lives in the same town, in a multimillion dollar place, in a gated area. He has a lot of money, and I don't know what my rent goes to, but I am guessing it's a drop in the bucket for him. I assume so, because he hasn't cashed my rent checks in many, many months. Do I remind him to? [more inside]

Help me stay out of debtor's prison!

For the past 6 years, I have lived in an expensive NYC apartment (that I love), sharing the rent with my boyfriend -- but I can't carry alone since my relationship has ended. I was rocked by the breakup, didn't immediately move and managed to miss 4 months of rent as I struggled to figure out what to do. I have now found a new, affordable place and am feeling stronger. My current landlord is ok with releasing me from the lease, holds a month security, but the 4 open months add up to a lot -- more than I can pay AND move. I have emailed with my current landlord and said as much, asking what we can work out but I'm losing a lot of sleep/am a wreck over this as I wait to hear back. The landlord is decent and typically ok working with me on things -- but it's a lot of money. What scenarios might play out here? By the way, I don't have the option of tapping savings, borrowing money or going to the ex for help.

International researcher housing woes and tenant rights

Question: I'm from the UK temporarily working and living in a university city in Ontario, Canada for the 2009/2010 academic year. Due to the fact that I work from home a lot and have to transfer large files (via Skype/DropBox/FTP) from Canada to my labmates overseas, my landlady's internet usage has gone up since I've become a tenant. I think she's using Rogers Express or Extreme Plan. If I'm understanding things correctly, according to the Ontario Landlord/Tenant Act, Canadian landlords can't increase a rent until 12 months after a tenancy has started. What do I do? [more inside]
