In one case, although the tenant undertook, in divorce proceedings, to transfer the lease in his wife`s name, the fact that there was no deed meant that an assignment had not taken place. Nothing was done to transfer the lease in the woman`s name, although she continued to live alone in the apartment and paid the rent. When she asked senior executives to put the rental book in her name, she took over the property.  Even if the AST agreement expressly prohibits the transfer, the transfer may take place with the agreement of the lessor. With the owner`s consent, an AST can be awarded to each. It is important to follow the correct procedure when assigning a client, otherwise the assignment may be invalid. The assignment is a way for a tenant to transfer their tenancy agreement to another person. In certain circumstances, a court may order an assignment under family law. When the real tenant of the AST leaves the apartment as the main residence, the lease returns to a common tenancy agreement that is no longer under the protection of the Housing Act and is the subject of a notice of termination. The original tenant no longer has rental security and can be “evacuated” with the new “tenant,” who is now a resident without an hour. Most of the time, when a tenant decides to leave their property, they will do so at the end of the fixed term of the lease and they will give you free ownership of the property if they do. For an assignment to be legal, it must be done by deed, i.e. a written document signed and certified “as an act”.
This is necessary for the order to bind the lessor and any other party involved in the transfer, but is not part of the transfer agreement. The transfer file should be retained by the new tenant if it has to prove that the transfer took place, whereas it would be a good idea if the outgoing tenant (s) had a copy. An act is also required if the original lease has been agreed orally.  The assignment is different from the situation in which a tenant leases someone and remains a tenant of the original landlord. In this case, a sublease is created, and the original tenant becomes the owner of the new tenant. A sublease is when the tenant temporarily hands over the rights and obligations of a tenancy agreement to a third party through a sublease contract.
