Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.
To prevent the subletting a term would have had to be included in the lease agreement which prevents this being done. As such, you would have to revisit the lease to see whether any provisions were made in this regard. If there was, then you could bring an action against the leaseholders on this basis.
I hope I was able to help. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.
