Guidance Notes for Assignment of Tenancy / Lease

Please read these guidance notes carefully
before submitting your application

  1. The fee for the preparation of the licence to assign is £265.00. This is to be paid once the application has been validated.
  2. The Council will accept no application for assignment if rent arrears are outstanding.
  3. The Council recommends that you use a solicitors when undergoing an assignment as this protects the interest of both parties.

Please note that storerooms do not form part of the lease and are not assignable and will not be transferred to an assignee if a change of trade is required. However if use remains the same the storerooms will transfer to the assignee.

I wish to remind you that you are advised not to complete any financial transactions with, or allow, the other party to take / give possession of the unit(s) until the Council has given it's written consent.

This is extremely important as the current tenant will remain liable for all rental payments until such time when the proposed transfer date has been agreed by all three parties.
