In an article of this short length it would be futile to attempt a reconciliation of the decisions relating to the question posed by the title in transactions whereby a lessee has transferred his interest in a lease. The writer will in the main discuss a few of the decisions dealing with the question in Georgia.

However, at the outset, a brief summary of the general law might prove helpful.
