A deed of surrender transfers ownership to the owner, usually after the fiduciary duties and obligations of both parties have been fulfilled. We are often consulted by retail or office tenants who question their right to the return of their lease before the expiry of their life. They might want to do this due to a lack of economic conditions or structural problems at the site. When the prevailing market price has increased in the area, landlords often welcome a rental tax, even by a reliable tenant. Some of the important issues to be addressed are the date of departure, the condition of the premises at the time of handover and the general release of the tenant`s other obligations in the rental agreement are all conditions that must be negotiated. .
