British Columbia landlords, if you have sold a rental property and are assigning an existing lease to the new owner, use this ready-made template to prepare an Assignment of Lease by Landlord.
- The Assignment is between the seller (current landlord or "assignor"), the purchaser of the property (new landlord or "assignee"), and the tenant.
- The tenant covenants to pay rent to the new landlord and continue to perform the tenant's obligations under the lease.
- The assignor and assignee agree to indemnify each other against any claims or actions arising out of any breach of the terms of the assignment.
