Do you mean that you are still waiting to have confirmation from your landlord?
The correspondence from the solicitor should be sufficient to prove that you surrendered the lease although some parties can be remarkably pedantic about wanting a piece of paper.
There are a couple of ways at least of dealing with this. One is to let them have a Statutory Declaration as to the circumstances.
The other one is to take the landlord to court to compel him to let you have the document. His solicitor is just being lazy or it may be that the landlord doesn’t want to pay the solicitor’s costs.
What’s going to be quickest and easiest is if you offer to pay the solicitors costs for providing the requisite document. Quicker and cheaper than anything.
The landlord is not under a duty to supply the document.
