How to Migrate DHCP from Windows Server 2008 to 2012/2016

What would happen to lease IP on the device?
Will they get new IP immediately from new server or they will stay with the old ip until the lease expires?

I would assume that at the half-wide point of the lease that the renewal would be denied and it would request a new IP address from the new DHCP server, since the old DHCP server is de-authorized at that point.

Halfway through the lease period, the DHCP client requests a lease renewal, and the DHCP server extends the lease. If a computer stops using its assigned IP address (for example, if a computer is moved to another network segment or is removed), the lease expires and the address becomes available for reassignment.
