If the lessee arbitrarily sublets the house, can the lessor cancel the contract in Vietnam?
Can a lessee cancel the contract if they arbitrarily sublet the house? My name is Kieu, I'm 40 years old and I'm the owner. I let Phi rent a room for 3,000,000 VND. However, I haven't seen Phi moving around the house for a month, so when I went to see the house, I saw that Phi had rented my house to a stranger named Phu for 4,000,000 VND. I want to ask if I can cancel the contract with Phi?

Is the house being leased still mortgaged in Vietnam?
I have a house in Ward 6, District 3 that is currently rented with monthly payments. I need to mortgage this house, can I? The real estate lease contract expires in 2021.
Article 146 of the 2014 Housing Law stipulates the mortgage of rental housing as follows:
1. The homeowner is entitled to mortgage the house under lease agreement provided that he/she notify the lessees of the mortgage in writing in advance. The lessees are entitled to keep renting for the rest of the lease term.
2. In case the house under the lease agreement is settled to fulfill the obligations of the mortgagor, the lessees are entitled to keep renting for the rest of the lease term, unless the lessees commit violations prescribed in Clause 2 Article 131 of this Law or otherwise agreed.
Thus, the house you are leasing to someone else can be mortgaged. However, you must notify the lessee in writing about the mortgage in advance in Vietnam. The lessee can continue to lease until the expiration of the lease contract (2021).
