Does anyone know if a landlord can force a tenant to sublet a room in a house they have sole tenancy of?

Can a landlord force a tenant to sublet a room in a house they have sole tenancy of?

No, the landlord cant force this.

Suggest before you contact the landlord have a thorough read of your agreement just in case any little hidden gems in there.
Can’t see it holding up legally anyway.

depends. If you had taken up sole tenancy on the proviso that you will pay him x amount and then if u cannot afford this x amount, he may have suggested you to sublet.If you don’t want to sublet and cannot pay this x amount, look for a place within your means. More often it is the other way round. Tenants sublet rather than landlord themselves requesting.
