A lease dictates the relationship between the landlord and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed.

It was part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it can take one year to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
