1. Overview Occasionally, tenants want to leave a property before the end of their lease. Individuals can accept new jobs in new cities, and companies can leave the company or sell their business to third parties. In any case, tenants can transfer their rental interests to new parties by entering into an assignment of the lease. Sometimes circumstances change, and as a business owner, you may have to assign your rights and obligations from a contract to another party. A properly crafted divestiture and acquisition agreement can help you organize the transfer smoothly while preserving the cordiality of your initial business relationship under the original contract. A general guarantee deed is used to transfer real estate from one person to another. This type of act offers the greatest protection to the buyer and has specific requirements for what should be included in the document. .
