About this document
This deed 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 (see this one).

The document I ordered was exactly what I needed and was straightforward, requiring minimum explanation to the client. I have used Netlawman in the past - about 2 or 3 years ago so I was familiar with the procedure. The ability to download the document enabled me to proceed quickly with the matter.

The prompt response and explanatory notes with the document made it easy to follow.
This resulted in a considerable saving compared with consulting a solicitor.
I stumbled upon the website and I am glad that I did.
My concern was whether it was a genuine site but this was eased very quickly.
For straightforward matters, which do not necessarily require a legal consultation, I would certainly recommend Net Lawman.

I find your law forms very concise and straightforward to use. Previously I used your Grazing Agreement which was good but needed more emphasis on clearing up fields at the end. Your forms seem to me to be by far the best of the bunch on the Internet.

Very good, plain English document, which with its notes, is easy to adapt to a particular situation.

I needed to produce a simple Deed of surrender whereby my tenant requested early termination of a lease. it required provisions for payment of outstanding rent and the template provided for this in its outstanding obligations section. the document was very easy to edit and also came with a pdf guide to editing. It looks professional, and served the purpose for what I intended. matter concluded! Happy days!
