Selling a commercial property with existing tenants? Delivery of estoppel certificates may be a requirement of a seller under a contract to sell. If so, consider using the Commercial Tenant Estoppel Certificate (TXR 1938).

This form is designed to be completed by a tenant occupying commercial space. The tenant certifies that the statements in the certificate are true. Statements in the certificate refer to matters such as the lease term, current rent, any breaches, and other rights or obligations of the tenant under the lease.

The certificate is typically delivered to a buyer, lender, or prospective lender of the property.
