Notwithstanding that your last Allestree conveyancing solicitor is not around you can review your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the premises. The rule is that if the deeds are silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must obtain permission via your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining consent. The consent should not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
