My partner and I may need to sub-let our Moor Row basement flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Moor Row conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Moor Row do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. 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 permission.

You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
