what does the tenancy agreement say about subletting?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
He's allowed to do it, he has permission from the landlord
Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 2 years ago.
Yes. The general principle is that the sub-tenancy falls with tenancy unless something else has happened by way of an acknowledgment or creation of new tenancy by the landlord (such as taking rent directly). The sub tenant may have a claim for damages in breach of quiet enjoyment and derogation from grant against the tenant.Please rate positively
