Is Marisa correct (business law question)?
. Marissa rent an apartment from Cabana Bay in January. The lease was for a year. In June, Marissa received a job offer in another state. She did not want to break her lease, therefore she sub-leased or assigned her lease to Olivia. Marissa did not get permission from Cabana Bay. Olivia moves in and pays rent from June to October. Cabana Bay sues Marissa for the two months of rent. Marissa believes she is not liable for The rent

Marisa needs to learn that when she signed the lease it was a legal binding contract and she was liable for it to its expiration
she did not get permission to sublet and actually could be liable for all the months that she vacated--she defaulted on the lease when she moved out with allowing an unauthorized party to use her apt.

Marisa sublet without permission of the landlord 1st breach of her contract and can be sued.
Marisa is the contracted tenant for 12 months and owes the landlord money until end of contract

If the rent was not paid for November, December, and january, Marissa is responsible and is the one who will be sued. She is the person who is on the lease with management for the apartment.
Since she did not have permission to sublet, she violated the lease in that manner as well.
She will have to sue her tenant, Olivia, for the three months' rent & late fees.Source(s): FL landlord
