About this document
A “surrender” of a lease is the name of the document which is used to terminate a commercial lease by agreement between the landlord and the tenant. For a formal surrender, the document should be executed in the form of a deed as this one is. It may also be used to surrender any other commercial lease.
A surrender may be immediate and simple, but in many cases the Landlord will want to be sure that the Tenant leaves the premises when required and in the condition required by the lease. This surrender document covers the Landlord's position thoroughly.
Note that the conditions imposed by the Landlord in return for a payment might be anything. We have provided here a template which can be used flexibly.
