What is
a Lease?

A lease is a contract between the owner, known as the landlord, and the tenant. In a lease the owner retains ownership of the property yet transfers exclusive possession of the property to the tenant for an agreed period and on agreed terms. A lease is a very important document because it contains the main terms of the agreement between the landlord and the tenant. It is the contract they have to live with for the term of the lease.
