Notwithstanding that your previous Rawtenstall conveyancing lawyer is not available you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the apartment.

Quite often there is a prerequisite that you need to seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person in advance of subletting. This means that you cannot sublet without prior permission. The consent should not be unreasonably withheld. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
