Customer Question

I am currently about to surrender a lease,
the following paragraph is in the deed of surrender -
(A) This deed is supplemental to the Lease.
(B) The Landlord is entitled to the immediate reversion to the Lease.
(C) The residue of the term granted by the Lease is vested in the Tenant.
(D) The Tenant's Guarantor has entered into guarantee and other obligations in respect of the tenant covenants of the Lease.
does this mean I am still liable should the new tenant not pay?

Hi Tom,
I am the old tenant and on the lease I signed when I moved in 3 years ago I signed as a guarantor aswell.
Best Regards

Thank you for your question and patience, I’m Tom and I’ll try to help you.
Basically, the clauses that you have cited are the recitals to a deed of surrender. These are the passages which go before the actual parts of the deed which legally surrender a tenancy.
If the Tenant, Guarantor and Landlord are accurately named (when the names are inserted) then it accurately describes the tenancy.
After the passage you have cited the actual surrender wording will be inserted. This is what actually surrenders the tenancy legally.
If you were to simply sign below the passage you have cited then it would have no legal effect and the tenancy would not be surrendered.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question.
Kind regards,
