New Expert here.Does the lease itself state whether or not it can be assigned, or whether or not you are allowed to sublet?
Is the property in Illinois?
Unless your landlord posted it on line, the lease would not be there. Does your friend have a copy?
Is your husband still under any type of supervised release, or has he completely served the sentence?
I cannot find the lease on line without knowing either the name of the lessor, or which form was used, or if it was a custom made lease not on a standard form. You have the right to ask the landlord for a copy of the lease. Do you think you can do that and then get back to me here?You will be in a stronger position once your husband is completely finished with the sentence.
