California tenants, if you want to assign your lease or sublet the premises for the remainder of the lease term, you will need to get your landlord's consent.

between you and your landlord with this easy-to-use template.
- The new tenant must meet the landlord's requirements, and the landlord must give its written approval of the new tenant.
- The form contains clauses for either an assignment of the lease or a sublease of the premises.
- The landlord has the option to hold the existing tenant responsible for performing the tenant's obligations until the end of the lease term, or alternatively, to release the tenant from all obligations under the lease once a new tenant is approved.
