Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. I am a solicitor in England and Wales, if you have not sublet then just reply to say you are not sure you understand their email as you never sublet the property. They will then have to provide you with the evidence of the subletting. I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your convenience. All the best

Morning, if you sublet and the lease doesn’t permit subletting then you can be requested to account for the rent received from the sublease and again since it’s breach you may lose the property. You would Aldi need to check the lease wording because sometimes the consequences are spelt out in the lease.
