What Is The Difference Between A License Agreement And A Lease

Case law has already highlighted the differences between a lease and a license, in particular the fact that a lease can give a commercial tenant a guarantee of ownership, which is not the case with a license. The law also confirms that even if an agreement claims to be called a “license,” it doesn`t mean it`s actually a license. This was significant in two recent residential cases that included licenses and leases. Subject to the terms of the contract, a rental agreement is not revocable by the owner. If you have a one-year lease, the landlord cannot revoke your right to the land after six months without breaking the contract. However, a license is revocable. In this case, the neighbor next door can always tell you that you are no longer allowed to climb his tree. .
