2. All other partners consent.
B. An assignee who has become a limited partner has, to the extent assigned, the rights and powers and is subject to the restrictions and liabilities of a limited partner under the partnership agreement and this chapter. An assignee who becomes a limited partner also is liable for the obligations of his assignor to make and return contributions as provided in articles 5 and 6 of this chapter. However, the assignee is not obligated for liabilities unknown to the assignee at the time he became a limited partner.
