Subletting - does this constitute lease termination?

A head tenant must get written permission from the landlord before sub-letting. If a tenant sub-lets the property without doing so, the landlord can serve them with a 14-day notice to vacate (end the tenancy and leave the property).

A landlord must give permission to sub-let, unless there is a good reason to refuse. It is illegal to charge a fee for giving permission.
