About this deed of surrender for a business lease

This document allows a landlord and a tenant to end a commercial property lease by mutual agreement before the end of the contractual lease term. It can be used for both registered and unregistered leases.

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.

"Surrender" is simply the legal term for the tenant agreeing to end the lease and leave the property. The document should be executed as a deed because a deed does not require consideration (each party to give something of value).

The document includes options for either party to pay the other for any reason such as:

  • improvements made by one party to the building during the lease
  • agreement to end the lease quickly
  • agreement to leave the property in an agreed state of repair

The reason for the payment is not important and does not need to be specified in the document.

The document includes options for release provisions: conditions that must be met for the lease to be surrendered.

The document is suitable for any commercial property lease: offices, shops, industrial properties and land. It is not suitable for residential property.
