If it is important for the debtor who benefits from the benefit of his performance obligation under the contract, the receipt of the service is a personal right that cannot be assigned. For example, a student who wants to earn pocket money during the school year registers to do research for a teacher she admires and is friends with. The professor awards the contract to one of his colleagues with whom the student cannot agree. The task is inefficient, as it is important for the student (the debtor) to know who the assignee`s person is. An insurance company offers car insurance for Mohammed Kareem, a sixty-five-year-old man who drives very carefully. Kareem cannot assign the contract to her seventeen-year-old grandson because the insurance company cares who her insured person is. Tenants generally cannot assign their tenancy without the landlord`s permission (sublet), as it is important for the landlord to know who their tenant`s person is. Section 10.4.1 “Non-Separatist Rights,” Nassau Hotel Co. v. Barnett & Barse Corp., is an example of the non-jurisdiction of a personality right. Many residents of the city of Centerville sign up for the Centerville Times each year to receive their morning newspaper. A customer who withdraws from the city can transfer his right to receive the paper to another person inside the delivery route. As long as the assignee pays for the paper, the assignment is effective; The only relationship the debtor has with the assignee is routine delivery against payment.
However, in the original contract, debtors may accept the assignment of tasks a posteriori. Here is a clause in the World Team Tennis League contract: “It is mutually agreed that the club has the right to sell, assign, act and transfer this contract to another club in the league, and the player accepts such sale, exchange, assignment or transfer and will be bound by it and will faithfully comply with his obligations under this contract, as if it came from the player and another club. Consent is not required if the contract does not involve a personal relationship. . . .
