The object of the lease are movable and immovable things, including: land, enterprises, buildings, structures, equipment, vehicles and other things that do not lose their natural properties in the process of their use (such things are called non-consumable). The lease agreement must clearly define the specific property being leased, that is, the data allowing individualization of the rental object must be directly indicated in the agreement. In foreign law, it is allowed to rent not only things, but also rights representing property value, as well as securities (in particular shares) and even shares of trading associations [1].

Lease contract

Lease agreement is a contract in which the lessor undertakes to give the tenant the right to use the item / service for a fixed or unlimited period in exchange for a remuneration in the form of rent paid by the tenant. The subject of rent may be movable things, as well as real estate, as well as parts of things in general or even component parts. Expendables and rights are excluded from the lease. The lessor is obliged to provide the tenant with things in a condition suitable for the agreed use, and to keep it in proper condition for the entire duration of the contract at its own expense. The tenant is obliged to pay rent, which can be determined by money or other benefits, as well as use things in the manner prescribed by the contract, and take care of it. The lease expires automatically upon the expiration of the term for which the contract was concluded. If no time has been noted, it will expire as a result of the termination [2].
