Recently, I found out that, while current away for a few weeks from a house I rent with three other students, that my landlord had decided to sublet out mine and another’s (who was also away) rooms, without notifying us or seeking our permission. This despite us being fully up to date with rent. It seemed his motive was that he wanted to use rooms that were currently unfilled, if only to sublet them for a few weeks.
I can’t find anything in the tenancy agreement that explicitly prohibits him from doing this, but neither is there anything that explicitly allows him to.
I’d love to know what the legality of this is, and whether it’s a usual occurrence? As well as what I might perhaps do next.
Thanks in advance!
