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

    Hola soy chileno, resido en Viña del Mar, tengo a la fecha 64 años de edad, soy casado y padre de tres hijos ya todos profesionales, y fuera de casa, con sus propias familias en formación. Me desempeño como Corredor de Propiedades certificado por la Asociación de Corredores de Propiedades de Chile. Me gusta el idioma inglés y también el portugués. En Inglés gramaticalmente no tengo problemas, pero sí en los modismos y en vocabulario, es decir, tanto en forma oral como escrita, me comunico, pero hay palabras que nunca las he escuchado. Con los modismos me pasa lo mismo. Prefiero contactar con mujeres a las cuales ayudaré con mucho gusto con mi idioma español siempre que ayuden con mi aprendizaje en inglés. Las espero.
