A lease assignment is used when a new tenant moves into a real estate location, but the parties want to continue the tenancy under the existing lease. This happens for many reasons, including the tenant going out of business, the sale/purchase of a business, or desire to move a business location. To give the new tenant (the Assignee) the same legal rights that the original tenant (the Assignor) had in the real property (and to continue the lease), the parties usually execute a written Assignment of Lease, which they then have the Landlord sign to show the Landlord's consent (if required under the existing lease). The Assignment of Lease provided through this Site provides standard language which transfers the tenancy from the Assignor to the Assignee.
