This declaration should be used in response to receiving a landlord's notice to exclude security of tenure. Security of tenure is the right of a tenant to occupy a property after the lease expires. A commercial tenant should use this agreement to state they understand the implications of entering a lease without security of tenure. There are two ways to respond to the landlord's notice, either by way of a simple declaration or statutory declaration. The type of declaration chosen will depend on the time left remaining before a tenant has to commit to the lease. This declaration excludes the provisions of sections 24 to 28 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
