The Grant of a Lease

  • Priscilla Sarton
Chapter
Part of the Palgrave Macmillan Law Masters book series

Abstract

The grant of a lease is often not preceded by a contract that it will be granted. There is then no legal tie between the parties until the leasehold term itself comes into existence. The lease is usually prepared in duplicate, one part being executed by the landlord (the lease), the other part being executed by the tenant (the counterpart lease). The leasehold term comes into existence on the exchange of the two parts.
