My tenants in Chicago want to sublet their apt last 4 months

Customer Question

my tenants in Chicago want to sublet their apt for the last 4 months of their lease. I have added in the covenants of the lease, if they break the lease they will lose their security deposit. I do not want them to sublet the apt--they are moving out of state and don't think they can properly manage any subletters so I told them I will begin showing the apt. Also the rent has gone up in the area and I will be be charging more if new people move in. What are my rights?

Hello and thank you for using the Just Answer website. I look forward to assisting you. Does the lease allow them to sublet? What does it state about subleasing in the lease?
