The 'duties' vary from state to state. You may want to search 'landlord tenant law in (state).' This will have a very specific outline...covering many topics. If you are under a lease, also make sure to read that carefully, as sometimes there are clauses in there that are not covered by the states mandates.

Can a landlord lock you out of your apartment that you sub lease?

If you sub-lease a unit, then the tenant that leases to you is considered your Landlord. Their landlord is NOT the sub-lessee's landlord. The master landlord, who usually does not allow subleasing, is not bound by the Landlord/Tenant Act toward the sub-lessee. So if they kick out your sub-landlord, they are kicking out EVERYONE. The master landlord cannot lock out his tenant unless they legally evict that tenant. Since a sub-lessee doesn't have the same rights, then they too are locked out.
