Residential Lease Asignement

A residential lease assignment can transfer a lease from one tenant to another before the initial lease agreement has expired.

A residential lease assignment is the form you'd use to transfer a lease agreement to a new tenant, without having to wait for the lease term to end. We've got professional forms, and a free boilerplate template.

Professional Forms

These forms, provided by Nolo, are legally valid in your state, professionally written, and regularly updated by expert attorneys. Use these if you need to create a legally enforceable contract.

Free Basic Form Template

The form below is a very basic one, using boilerplate language, and is intended for educational purposes only. It has not been vetted by an expert, or recently updated. It may not be legally valid.
