Some leases for properties in Isle of Dogs do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord.

Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
