 lease

A contract by which the owner of an asset (the lessor) permits another (the lessee) to use the asset for a stated time in return for payment at an agreed rate. The asset remains at all times the property of the lessor although sometimes the lessee is given an option to purchase the asset either during the currency of the lease or at its termination.
