Apologies if this is a silly first question, I have searched the forum but can't find a definitive answer.
I own my flat (i.e. pay a mortgage on it). I am moving into my partner's flat and want to rent mine out. However, my lease says the following:
"8. That the demised premises shall be kept and used as and for a single private residence in one occupation only"
"9.That the tenant will not assign transfer or underlet any part only of the demised premises"
Does this mean I am not allowed to rent out my flat? or does it mean that if I rent it out that whoever I rent it to cannot sublet it?
If it does mean I cannot rent out my flat, how can I get around this? Can I request a change to the lease? will I need a solicitor to do this?
