Re: Limited Apartment Contract Termination

Iirc it's illegal to charge more than you rent the place for anyway. Certainly double the rent would leave the OP open to having to pay their landlord at least a portion of the extra money they earned.

Here are the rules:

"Art. 262
1 A tenant may sub-let all or part of the property with the landlordís consent.
2 The landlord may refuse his consent only if:
a. the tenant refuses to inform him of the terms of the sub-lease;
b. the terms and conditions of the sub-lease are unfair in comparison with those of the principal lease;
c. the sub-letting gives rise to major disadvantages for the landlord.
3 The tenant is liable to the landlord for ensuring that the sub-tenant uses the property only in the manner permitted to the tenant himself.
To this end the landlord may issue reminders directly to the sub-tenant."

"Art. 291
1 The lessee may sub-let all or part of the leased object with the lessorís consent.
2 The lessor may refuse his consent to the sub-letting of premises which form part of a leased property only if:
a. the lessee refuses to inform him of the terms of the sub-lease;
b. the terms and conditions of the sub-lease are unfair in comparison with those of the usufructuary lease;
c. the sub-letting gives rise to major disadvantages for the lessor.
3 The lessee is liable to the lessor for ensuring that the sub-tenant or sub-lessee uses the object only in the manner permitted to the lessee himself. To this end the lessor may issue reminders directly to the subtenant or sub-lessee."
