What else you might like to know about Assignment of Lease (landlord)

If your business is sub-letting a property to a tenant, a legal service provider is well placed to draw up the legal documentation for signing over the lease to a sub-tenant. Here is some basic advice and guidance to inform your choice of legal expert.

What is meant by assignment of lease?

The assignment of a lease is the process of transferring the lease of a property to a sub-tenant. In simple terms the existing tenant hands over their obligations to a landlord and their responsibilities for a property over to a new resident. In some instances, the original tenant may still need to act as intermediary between the sub-tenant and the landlord.

What are the benefits of assigning a lease?

The assignment of a lease mainly benefits the assignor, or the original tenant, as it allows them to vacate their premises before the previously agreed termination date of the lease. Typically, any impact on the landlord is minimal.

Do I maintain responsibility for the property?

As the landlord, you retain overall responsibility for a property throughout the assignment process. The tenancy may change but you may still be required to liaise with the assignor and your obligations to any tenant in your property remain the same.

How can I choose the best legal expert?

It is worth considering a number of factors when choosing a legal expert to handle the assignment of a lease. You may wish to consider the location, reputation and cost of a firm before making your decision. Customer reviews can be particularly useful in establishing the right legal service provider for you.

 

Answer a few short questions now and start comparing legal service providers based on the criteria most important to you.

How will a legal service provider charge me?

Assignment of a lease is a relatively straightforward process. Legal service providers may charge you on a fixed fee or fixed fee with capped hours basis, depending on the firm and the specifics of your matter.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.
