Subletting your home

Whether you can sublet your home – and the process involved – depends on your type of lease and ownership. Please note that if your lease says that you need our permission to sublet your home, Stonewater will charge you an administration fee.

Shared owners

Your lease does not allow you to sublet or give possession to someone else of all or part of your property.

You must get our permission before subletting your property. There are some situations in which we can give you permission. Please contact us to find out further details on our subletting policy.

Retirement scheme

In most cases you cannot sublet a retirement scheme home without our permission. If you are considering subletting your property, please contact Stonewater. We will require the request in writing and your lease may require that you need our written consent before you can proceed.

Leaseholders

In most cases you cannot sublet your home without our permission. If you are considering subletting your property, please contact Stonewater. We will need the request in writing. If we give you permission to sublet, you need our written consent. This will depend on your lease.

Freeholders

If you let your home to a tenant, please let us know as soon as possible. You must provide a contact address for us to serve Notice of Estate Charge on.

You must make sure that your tenants adhere to the conditions of the transfer document.
