Tenancy taken out oct 2016 and AST contract ended oct 2107, in May 2017 head tenant sublet without permission, head tenant left in May 2017. Now because the head tenancy has ended (i.e. fixed period) can proceedings be brought against the sub-letters without the requirement to end the head tenancy, or is it now periodic which means that this tenancy needs ending first?
In addition the sub letters have offered to pay rent but it has not been accepted since last November, can a s8 be used?
What would be the best approach?
