Should You Allow Your Tenant to Assign the Lease?

Assigning the lease or rental agreement means your tenant is giving up their legal obligations under the lease and finding someone else to take their place. Whether or not this is permissible primarily depends on your lease or rental agreement.

However, most State laws require landlords to take active steps to mitigate the damages you may suffer when your tenant moves out early. This usually involves making a reasonable effort to find a replacement.
