Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you got an indemnity against the previous owner?
Sadly not. If its a breach of the lease then you may be responsible for removal.
However it all depends whether the landlord knew. If the landlord did know then you wont need to remove it, as that is agreeing to the breach.
If the landlord didnt know about it then you may have to remove it, that would be down to you.
Renting a room is not subletting, this means the property in general.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
