Landlord's Consent Letter to Assignment of Lease by Tenant

The "assignment of lease" means the transfer of rights under a lease agreement from the original tenant to a new sub-tenant.

consent of landlord to assignment of lease by tenant
In simple words, if a tenant wants to leave the leased premises and wants to give it to someone else for using the said property for the period remaining under the contract, then he can do so only by assigning it to that person.

Such an assignment is mostly done only after getting a written consent from the landlord.

The lease contract generally has specific conditions regarding such an assignment of lease, wherein either it is fully prohibited or allowed only after getting landlord's consent.

Here is a sample of letter of consent written by the landlord to his tenant allowing the proposal for assignment to a new tenant.
