Good question. Since points can be transferred prior to the time that maintenance fees are due, as a general rule, they don't tie you down to paying your MF's prior to transferring your points. That said, if for example it is in mid 2015 and you had not paid your 2015 MF's yet, could MVC refuse to allow you to transfer your points. I guess they could. That said, in your situation, since you are renting 2016 points, there is no way that anybody has already paid their 2016 MF's (as they haven't been billed yet), so that would certainly not be a restriction that you would need to worry about for the transaction you have outlined.
