Even though your last Abercarn conveyancing solicitor is not available you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The rule is that if the lease is silent, subletting is permitted. There may be a precondition that you need to obtain consent from your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without prior permission. The consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If your lease prohibits you from letting out the property you should ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
