Sub-letting of tenancies

Applying to sub let your home

As your landlord, you must tell us if you want to sublet any part of your tenancy. Section 12(2) of the 2014 Act makes the following changes:

  • You must have been the tenant of the house throughout the 12 months immediately before you apply for written permission to sublet your home (previously there was no qualifying period), or
  • If you were not the tenant throughout the whole of that period, the house must have been your only or principal home during those 12 months; and the tenant must have told us that you were living there prior to the start of those 12 months.

This change will come into effect from 1 November 2019. If the tenant has already told us that you are living there then no further notification is needed.

Please use the 'contact us' box if you have any questions.
