What's an assignment of residential lease?
With an assignment of residential lease, you can transfer your entire interest in a lease to another party before your lease term is up, with your landlord's written permission. The new tenant takes on the lease responsibilities, including rent and property maintenance, and you are released from most (if not all) of your duties. We offer an assignment of residential lease form to ensure proper documentation of the landlord's written approval of your lease transfer.
Here's the info you'll need to have handy to complete your doc:
Who it's going to
Have the information about the rental property ready, and the name and contact info for both the original renter and the new renter handy.
Which state will govern it
Specify a state so it's clear what laws apply to the document.
Have a summary of the general terms ready, like planned rent amount.
Be clear about the beginning and end dates of the lease.
