Consent to Assignment of Lease


Overview
- This Consent to Assignment of Lease is used by the tenant and landlord to confirm the terms and conditions under which a lease is assigned.  
- The consent evidences the landlord's agreement to the assignment and can be used as a full defense later if the landlord denies that he agreed to the assignment.  This document also provides for the tenant's continuing responsibilities after the assignment, if any 
- Many landlords have large real estate holdings.  For that reason, it is difficult for them to remember which tenants are original tenants and which tenants are the assignees of a prior tenant.  
- Further, the landlord wants to make sure that the new tenant is obligated by the terms and conditions of the existing lease.  The best method for advising the new tenant of the terms and conditions of the existing lease is to perform an assignment and incorporate all of the existing terms and conditions of the original lease.

When You Need It
- Used by a landlord to confirm the rights and responsibilities of the parties after the tenant assigns his or her lease.
