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.

Problem Solved
22 March 2022
I could not contact my solicitor and had to have a Lease surrender document signed before the end of the day to stop a new lease deal falling through. The document template that I got from Net Lawman was easy to fill in and job done.
thanks again

Perfectly Clear

Needed a straightforward surrender document, this one fulfilled the criteria perfectly - the template is written in very clear terms and was quick and simple to amend as needed especially with the included instructions.

I'm happy to have ended up with a document which both parties can read and understand, and which doesn't have a lot of unnecessary legalese.

This is my first use of Netlawman, based on my experience I recommend them and will definitely come back again as and when I need other types of document.
