The consequences of
Sub-letting your Council/Housing Association Property

Under Section 15 of the Housing Act 1988 there is a term in every assured tenancy that implies that  a tenant should not sub-let the property without the agreement of the Landlord. 
In the event that you do sub-let your council/housing association property  you will be in breach of your agreement with the Council under Ground 12  of the HA 1988. This could have serious consequences as the Council/Housing Association can apply for possession of the property.
