Is renting the same as subletting?

The Sub-Tenant is not the Landlord’s immediate tenant. This means that if there are any breaches of the sub-lease, the Landlord will often need to first approach the Tenant to remedy the breach. Essentially, the Landlord may feel they have less control over the property.

What happens if Landlord does not give sub tenant notice?
