Hi. I am about to start a new AST contract with Sarah, a tenant who wants to stay in my 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was previously let to her and her partner but since he left, she cannot afford the rent on her own.

If Sarah then sublets the apartment for 6 months, charges her flatmate rent and a portion of the utility bills and gives them what she has called "Tenancy Agreement for sublet" which includes the T&C's from the RLA AST contract I have given her, if in the unlikely but possible event I need to give notice to regain the apartment, after the six months AST have lapsed, would any notice I served on Sarah also apply to her sublet tenant? Or could I be left with a sitting tenant with whom I have no direct agreement?

many thanks,
