This case note comments on the Chancery Division ruling in Padwick Properties Ltd v Punj Lloyd Ltd [2016] EWHC 502(Ch) on whether a commercial lease was deemed to have been surrendered by operation of law after the property was vacated by the tenant, the keys returned to the landlord who implemented additional security measures and the property marketed for re-letting. It also discusses the heavy burden of proof imposed on tenants seeking to establish surrender in such situations.
