A lease can be surrendered by a tenant to a landlord ending a lease early.
The surrender must be a consensual agreement between both the tenant and landlord for it to come into effect and it can involve money changing hands. In past instances it has been ruled that even actions such as returning the keys to the landlord and the landlord changing the locks on the building does not does not amount to a surrender if the landlord does not consent.
Surrender must be done correctly to ensure you are truly released from the obligations in your lease and left with liability you haven’t banked on. To ensure that you do not find yourself in this situation you should seek legal advice and guidance. Our expert property team can help ensure that the surrender of the lease is concluded legally and with both parties consent so that you are not forced to chase unpaid rent nor are you forced to pay unexpected rent costs.
