Tenant possibly sub-letting

I have a tenant who has refused my electrician full access to inspect the property. The visit was at 9am and therefore this has reinforced my suspicion that she may be sub-letting.
The managing letting agents say that there is nothing that they can do to check this position as they are unable to carry out unannounced inspections. However, if an arrangement has been made for a tradesman to attend to quote for repairs that have been reported by the tenant, surely the tenant is in breach of her agreement if she will not allow full access to the house?
Does anyone have any sensible and legal suggestions as to what is the best way to investigate/ deal with a situation where a)the tenant may be sub-letting and b)they will not allow full access to the house to carry out essential maintenance work.
