The work catalogs and studies in detail (including in a comparative legal section) various legal forms of the creditor's approval of the transfer of debt by virtue of the transaction and on the grounds provided for by law. The main attention, first of all, is paid to debatable issues regarding the ratio of centralized and individual regulation of the relevant relations, the variety of ways to agree on the transfer of debt (models «consent is a unilateral transaction», «consent as a condition of the contract», etc.), the nature of the impact of (not) giving permission by the creditor on the fate of an agreement on the transfer of debt obligations concluded without his participation, comparison of the modes of preliminary and subsequent approval. The methodological basis of the research was formed by general theoretical (formal and dialectical logic) and special scientific (legal-dogmatic, interpretation of legal norms, legal modeling, comparative legal) methods. As a result, the author substantiates the feasibility of adjusting the legal provisions in the direction of a clear pairing of general instructions on consent to a transaction and special rules on consent to the transfer of debt, as well as in order to eliminate uncertainty about the actual moments of obtaining an approving creditor's will (subject of agreement, the essence of the nullity of the transfer of debt, admissibility the use of constructions of «impersonal» previously given and subsequent consent, etc.).
