Even though your previous Ireleth and Askam conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the property. The accepted inference is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you must seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without prior permission. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably withheld. If the lease prohibits you from subletting the property you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
