reasonable consent

reasonable consent

In most leases,a landlord's reasonable consent is required before the tenant may make an assignment of the lease or sublet to another tenant.The concept is naturally vague,as it must cover a wide variety of circumstances. It is intended to be understood by its negative—the landlord must have a stated reason for withholding consent,and,considering all the circumstances, that reason cannot be arbitrary, foolish, unfair, illegal, or unethical.
