    Lease Agreements
    A lease or rental agreement is a contract in which a property owner, the “landlord” or “lessor,” agrees to let another person, the “tenant” or “lessee,” use the owner’s real property in exchange for something of value, which is usually money in the form of “rent.” Leases are pretty long and cover many rights and responsibilities. The state laws control the lease contents. It is important to hire an attorney experienced in federal and state real estate law.
