Sublease and Assignments

A sublease allows your tenant to lease out the premises to a third party and act as the landlord. In an assignment (often mislabeled a sublease), your tenant legally substitutes a third party who assumes all of the rights and responsibilities of the lease. In other words, the third party simply steps into the shoes of the old tenant.
