This study discusses transferring the title of a rented property under the Jordanian Civil Code. The reason of this research is that the Jordanian Civil Code regulates the transfer of a rented property in one article i.e. Article 691. This Article deals only with one type of the transfer of a rented property, which is the sale contract. It neither addresses the impact of this contract, nor the ways of proofing it. It also neglects the effects of the contractual relationship between the parties. Moreover, the other related particular laws in Jordan, such as the Landlords and Tenants Act do not address this issue. This study aims to submit a proposal for a legal regulation of the transferring of title of a rented property, taking into account the experiences of the other countries. Hopefully, the Jordanian legislator will take it into consideration when reviewing the relevant provisions of law.
