I am not a fan of deeds of assignment due to the problems you have raised.
As I have explained, do it the long winded way if you wish to avoid problems.
Short cuts always backfire
To answer your questions above
1. Obviously if you cannot inspect it you cannot comment on it
2. You could make it a condition of letting him leave early but if the tenancy is assigned then you have a contravention. Do the deposit schemes have any guidance?
3. The new tenant needs an inventory of when they moved in
