What does your lease say about subletting? I've just been trawling through one and it says that within four weeks of subletting, the leaseholder has to notify the owner of the freehold in writing at it's registered office, giving details of the tenant and a copy of the tenancy agreement.

It also states that the leaseholder has to pay a £25 fee - "or such other reasonable fees as the landlord shall from time to time prescribe". This is an "admin" fee and the last bit worries me!

I don't know whether this is typical but you need to check the terms of your own lease. You should be able to find the registered office from Companies House - assuming the freeholder is a company.
