Illegal Sublease Agreement?
I signed an agreement where I promised to pay rent for one month for an apartment as a sublessor. The main part of the agreement is as follows:
•Sublessee shall pay directly to Sublessor(s) $508.75 per month at the place and time provided in the original Lease and ANY UTILITY BILLS during the time of occupation.
•Sublessee agrees to abide by all the obligations and responsibilities in the original Lease, a copy of which is attached and made part of this agreement.
No copy of the original elase was provided, but I have read it now and discovered that it contains a clause expressly forbidding subleasing with no exceptions. Am I legally bound to pay the monthly fee to my sublessor, or am I released since the elase itself forbids subletting?
