My partner and I may need to sub-let our Bourne garden flat for a while due to a new job. We used a Bourne conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

Notwithstanding that your last Bourne conveyancing solicitor is no longer around you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the premises. The rule is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you must seek permission via your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably withheld. If the lease prohibits you from letting out the property you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
