i rented a full property through my corporate company from a private individual and now want to sublet it out to young profesionals because i am relocating back to europe
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
if i dont inform the landlord would he be able to terminate the tenancy. the contract said nothing about subletting
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 9 months ago.

Sorry, I lost my connection.

Unless you have written permission from your landlord you cannot sublet.

There would also be issues here about the house being used for multiple occupation without proper licences.

You cannot rely on the absence of a prohibition in the contract to sublet. You need positive permission to do so.

Sorry if that is bad news.

Can I clarify anything for you?

That is perfect and very clear thank you. Can you just tell me if this is by a specific UK law?
Expert:  Remus2004 replied 9 months ago.

Yes, I'm in the Uk and only deal with England and Wales.

Thanks again I was after the specific law. But I guess best for me is to talk to my landlord and see if we can arrange terms of termination. Thanks again
