This Estoppel Certificate is a declaration, signed by the Tenant, that certain facts pertaining to Tenant's lease with its Landlord are true. The Estoppel Certificate is signed for the benefit of the Landlord, and is usually directed to a third party, such as a new purchaser of the property or a lender. The Estoppel Certificate gives the purchaser or lender an assurance, given by the Tenant (and not only the Owner of the property), that the lease is in full force and effect, that a certain amount (and not more) of rent and security deposit has been pre-paid, and that the landlord is not in default of any of landlord's obligations under the lease.

This document is normally used by real estate professionals, owners of commercial or multi-residential property, or others knowledgable in the real estate field. Purchasers of these types of properties, or lenders who loan money secured by these types of properties, normally require that the seller/borrower provide an estoppel certificate from all, or at least a major portion of all, tenants of the property.
