I have a tenant who signed a two year lease and a month later was asked by his firm to work overseas for 6 months. It is a two bedroom house and the tenant proposed to put all of his personal things in one bedroom and sub let the other bedroom and remainder of the house for the duration of his time away so that he gets some contribution towards his rental payments, does not fall foul of the insurance company and tenancy agreement requirements for the property not to remain unoccupied for more than 31 days and to avoid the risk of squatters.
I approached the estate agents whose advice was that the tenancy should terminated, the contract specifying that no sub letting is allowed and that he would be liable for the new lease agreement costs and rental payments until it has be successfully re-let.
