When a tenant wishes to transfer their rights to a Lease Agreement to a new tenant, they will need to create an Assignment of a Lease with the landlord so that all parties are aware of and agree to the transfer. This can be used in cases where a tenant is residing in a rent-controlled unit and wishes to pass the unit onto another individual who plans to live there once the current tenant has left. A printable Assignment of Lease template can be downloaded through the link below.
An Assignment of Lease differs from a Subletting Agreement, in that this agreement requires that the original tenant has agreed to permanently move out of the rental unit.
