Residential Lease Transfer

By | April 23, 2012

The residential lease transfer is a legal reassignment of the lease contract to another party. This transfer agreement relieves the original tenant from all obligations of the lease and transfers the obligations to a new tenant. This is done for various reasons and the new tenant must first qualify for all the criteria and be approved before the lease is signed. It must be ensured that the resident property that is to be transferred is in the same condition as it was during the original leasing. It is important that the residential lease transfer highlights the original lease terms and conditions.
