Under licensing agreements, legal ownership and ownership of the property remain in the hands of the licensee. Under a rental agreement, the tenant generally owns exclusive ownership of the property. In other words, a license does not arouse any interest in the premises for the benefit of the licensee. The difference between leasing and licensing is the difference between two separate legal terms that relate to a person`s obligations and rights in a contract. A tenancy agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord that offers the tenant an exclusive interest in the property. A license, on the other hand, is when the owner gives permission to a licensee to take action on the owner`s land. The main difference is that leases give a person the right to control the property, while licences give a single person the right to respond. Therefore, if there is no written agreement, you may be dealing with a lease agreement. But just because an agreement contains the above details doesn`t mean it`s a default rental.
To do so, primary control of what is done on the land must be in the hands of the tenant and not the landlord. It should also be noted that a lease cannot be revoked by the landlord until it is extended until any other conditions have been breached. On the other hand, licenses can be revoked at any time. Licensing, on the other hand, does not always need a written agreement to be binding. A licence may be granted to a party without any party ever meeting. For example, if you buy a ticket to a sporting event, the purchase of that ticket allows you to enter a sports centre and use a seat there for a predetermined period. You have not met with the owner of the seat, but the purchase of the ticket is a mandatory agreement between you and the owner. You have permission to use the seat, but you do not have the seat and there are certain rules that you must follow regarding your behavior in that seat if you have to comply with the terms of the license. A licensing agreement is easier to terminate than a lease. Licensing agreements can be entered into, leases are generally not concluded. We often come up face with the words rental and leave and license used in the language of business. A lot of people think that these two mean the same thing, and I`ve often encountered a lot of contracts that use both words interchangeably.
A contract, although called a vacation and licensing contract, can be interpreted by a court as a lease if bad legal terminology is used. A simple title in the “LEAVE AND LICENSE AGREEMENT” contract does not protect the landlord if there is an intention to create the relationship between the landlord and the tenant. Leasing and licensing are two different words, have their own legal definition, are enacted under different laws, meet different legal rights and have totally different legal consequences.
