Yes, you should instruct a solicitor. Most commercial leases have a provision that a property cannot be sublet in part. Your solicitor will have to check your lease to see if there is such a provision there. Even if the lease allows subletting in part you will need to draw up the paperwork correctly and have any sub lease signed, and you will also require landlords consent.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
