This deed of variation for a lease template can be used to vary the terms of a lease.

For the terms to be legally varied, both the landlord and the tenant must agree to the variation and sign a Deed of Variation to make the amendment binding. Our template comes with optional clauses, meaning it can be used whether or not the lease:

1. is a commercial lease or a long residential lease;

2. has been registered with the Land Registry;

3. is guaranteed by a third party;

4. (for a commercial lease) is classed by the Landlord and Tenant (Covenants) Act 1995 as a “new” or “old” lease; or

5. (for a commercial lease) includes a right for the business tenant to ask to extend the lease when it expires (“security of tenure”).

Where you want to vary the lease to grant the tenant a lease of a new site or additional building (or part of one), it is better to issue a fresh lease. We have a commercial lease template available for this. Our guide to the deed of variation also explains about this if you want to read more.

Where the variation is to surrender part of the site, instead you should use a deed of surrender (please see our deed of surrender of lease template for this), and if there are any other changes to the remaining site, then use this deed of variation for that remainder.
