Landlord’s Consent in Principle to Commercial Lease Assignment

Landlord’s Letter Consenting to Proposed Assignment of Lease


This Landlord’s Letter Consenting to Proposed Assignment of Lease lets a commercial property landlord confirm that the tenant has consent in principle to a proposed lease assignment. 

This letter should be sent once the landlord has considered the tenant’s application for consent to assign and has decided to allow the assignment to go ahead. If the landlord has decided to withhold consent to the assignment, the Refusal of Consent Letter should be used instead.

Landlords should refer to the Protocol for Applications for Consent to Assign or Sublet when handling an application for consent to assign. The Protocol can be found at In particular, landlords should note the requirement, where possible, to communicate their decision on the question of consent within 21 days of receiving the tenant's application.

The letter acknowledges receipt of the tenant’s application for consent, indicates that consent will be given and sets out any conditions to be complied with.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
