1) n. a written agreement in which the owner of property (either real estate or some object like an automobile) allows use of the property for a specified period of time (term) for specific periodic payments (rent), and other terms and conditions. Leases of real property describe the premises (often by address); penalties for late payments, termination upon default of payment or breach of any significant conditions; increases in rent based on cost of living or some other standard; inclusion or exclusion of property taxes and insurance in rent; limitations on use (for a butcher shop, a residence for the family only, no pets); charges for staying on beyond the term (holding over); any right to renew the lease for another period; and/or a requirement for payment of attorneys' fees and costs in case of the need to enforce the lease (including eviction). A lease is distinguished from a mere renting of the premises on a month-to-month basis and cannot exceed a year unless agreed to in writing. A "triple net" lease includes both taxes and insurance in the rent. 2) v. to rent out real property or an object pursuant to a written agreement. See also: leasehold real property rent statute of frauds triple net lease unlawful detainer

    Люблю читать, слушать музыку. Люблю хорошие фильмы для подумать. Вообще я интроверт, поэтому с людьми схожусь трудновато, но если таки это случилось, то общаюсь, чему- то учусь и, возможно, что- то даю взамен.

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.
