surrender
1. to give up a right.
2. the bringing to an end of a lease by the tenant's giving up his interest to his landlord. Surrender may be express or implied; express surrender should be effected by deed whereas implied surrender can be gleaned from the behaviour of the parties indicating that they both regard the lease as at an end.

Collins dictionary of law. . 2001.


surrender
The surrender of a lease by a tenant to its immediate landlord is a consensual arrangement between the landlord and the tenant. It results in the vesting of the tenant's estate in the landlord and the extinguishment of the term of the lease. Surrender is the acquisition by the landlord of the inferior (leasehold) estate. It is to be distinguished from the merger which occurs where the tenant acquires the superior estate from its landlord.
