    The lease does not state that "underlet" is the same meaning as "sublet".
    You would be extremely unlikely to get very far if you tried to use arguments of this sort in a court or tribunal.

    Firstly because, if the legal definition of a word is accepted as potentially being different from the way the word is used by 'lay persons', lay persons are expected to know the legal usage if they challenge the meaning in a court or tribunal.

    Secondly, in this example at least, it is very easy to find a dictionary definition that says that "underlet" can have the same meaning as "sublet". In fact, the first three dictionary links I clicked on include this definition:
    1. https://www.collinsdictionary.com/di...h/underletting
    2. https://www.thefreedictionary.com/underletting
    3. https://www.dictionary.com/browse/underlet
