An absolute ban on subletting is rare, but can be found in some rental contracts. If it exists, then it is difficult to avoid. It is not known that a single tenant could apply to the Appropriate Tribunal to vary according to Section 35 of the Landlord – Tenant Act 1987. The law states that if a safe, flexible or introductory tenant sublet his entire home, the tenant loses his status as a tenant. This means that your lease is no longer a safe, flexible or introductory rent and you lose the protection of the law. If you are a tenant protected by law, you also lose your rental status if you sublet your entire home and your landlord can apply for a property order without notification of termination. This means that there are two rental agreements at the same time for the property: before a tenant uses part of the rented apartment for anything other than a place of residence (z.B. for professional purposes or the list of rooms or the property for temporary rentals), he must speak with his landlord.

A tenant cannot sublet the house he rents if his tenancy agreement has a clause prohibiting him from doing so. If the rental agreement does not prohibit subletting, the tenant must continue to have written permission from the landlord to rent the house or part of it to someone else. Rent regulations generally allow tenants to replace outgoing roommates and/or increase the number of residents living in the unit, including family members, even if this is prohibited by a written rental agreement. However, tenants with a written tenancy agreement must follow the procedures described in sections 6.15A, 6.15B, 6.15D and 6.15E to obtain the landlord`s approval before having a new occupant in the unit. Procedures include strict deadlines that must be met by tenants and landlords who begin as soon as the tenant makes a written application for the new occupant. If the landlord does not respond in writing to the tenant`s request within 14 days of receipt, with a description and concrete facts that support the reason for the rejection of the application, the tenant`s application is deemed approved by law. In addition, if the landlord unreasonably rejects the tenant`s request for a new occupant for no legitimate reason, the tenant must not be evacuated because of the move of the new occupant to the unit.
