A lease is a legal agreement that provides for the use of something - typically real estate or equipment - in exchange for payment.
Once a lease is signed, its terms, such as the rent, cannot be changed unless both parties agree. A lease is usually legally binding, which means you are held to its terms until it expires. If you break a lease, you could be held liable in court.
