Privity of estate

PRIVITY OF ESTATE. The relation which subsists between a landlord and his tenant.
     2. It is a general rule that a termor cannot transfer the tenancy or privity of estate between himself and his landlord, without the latter's consent: an assignee, who comes in only in privity of estate, is liable only while he continues to be legal assignee; that is, while in possession under the assignment.
