Leased by someone not owning property?

I have searched the laws on line and can't seem to find a straight answer to this very simple question: Is it legal for someone to accept a lease from a renter (and money) by a person who doesn't own the property? I signed a lease with someone who was mutually known by a handful of my friends, so I didn't even think about it when it came time to sign a lease with him. But I didn't know til a few weeks later when I tripped on tax info on line for the property that someone elses name was listed as owner. I questioned the signee and he said that this was his partner and they flipped houses together. And I know I can perhaps use this fact to break the lease, but I'm needing to know if the signee has broken any laws outright in accepting our money and lease. Actions since we signed has caused us a lot of distress and we are in the process of fact finding to see what our options are.

Thanks for the advice
