The landlord will agree to a sublease. But the business owner wants the store and has nothing to lose as the deposit and rent money paid so far is mine.
The business owner will also not pay rent. So it seems the landlord will chase me for future rent money as the guarantor. At this point, I will take the upfront loss of rent and deposit.
If the landlord doesn't allow us to cancel the lease, is there anyway I can have the lease on my own or have her take the lease fully? As guarantor, do I have extra leverage to remove her from the lease?
