What is a Lease?

A lease is a contractual agreement between two parties whereby the Lessor allows the Lessee to use the equipment for a specific period of time in exchange for a series of payments.

There are three parties involved in a lease transaction:

  • Lessee (customer)
  • Lessor (owner of equipment who will finance the lease)
  • Equipment Vendor  (supplies the equipment)

Roles of the Lessee/Lessor
