The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Abergele do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.
