Asset 9 transparent logo


A lease is a crucial agreement between the one who would use an asset and the one who owns it. It is a contract that states the right of a lessee to use/rent a property, building, vehicle or equipment of the lessor and how it will be paid. A lease also includes the terms that the lessee must strictly follow (like using a car for personal use only) while using the asset.

All rules, rights and obligations related to leasing are all covered by leasing law. Whether you are a lessee or a lessor, it is important to have knowledge regarding this branch of law. However, leasing law can be challenging and often requires expert legal guidance. If you need help in understanding this law or require someone to resolve any contract breach, disputes, or other issues, hiring a law firm with expertise in leasing would take a lot of stress off your shoulders.
