Although the lessor retains ownership of the asset, it enjoys less rights to the asset during the agreement. One of these restrictions is that, because of its limited access to the asset, the owner can only access it with the permission of the lessor. He must inform the tenant of any maintenance of the asset or property before the actual duration of the visit. However, if the taker causes damage to the asset or uses the asset for illegal activities, the lessor reserves the right to distribute or terminate the taker without notice. At the expiry of the contract and depending on the condition of the asset, the asset or property is returned to the lessor, although the lessor may have an option to acquire the asset. The duration of the lease may be fixed, periodic or indeterminate. If this is the case for a given period, the duration automatically expires when the deadline expires and there is no need to notify the absence of legal requirements. The term may be conditional; in this case, it lasts until a particular event occurs. B for example the death of a particular person. A periodic lease is automatically renewed, usually monthly or weekly. A rent entitled only lasts as long as the parties wish and can be terminated by both parties without penalty. The most common form of rental is for houses or apartments where individuals and families live. Since housing is an important public policy issue, many jurisdictions have created governing bodies that govern and provide acceptable legal and rental relationships between landlords and takers in this area.

In New York State, for example, the State Division of Housing and Community renewal (DHCR) is responsible for managing rent regulation in the state, including New York. This responsibility includes both rent control and rent stabilization. An all-you-can-eat lease is a tenancy agreement that the landlord or tenant can terminate at any time by reasonable termination. Unlike a periodic lease, it is not linked to a period. This can take many years, but it could be terminated at any time either by the landlord or by the tenant, for some reason or for no reason. As always in the law of landlords/tenants, correct notification should be made, as stipulated in the state statutes. If there is no formal lease, the lease is the one that normally exists. In rare cases, the lease may not be taken into account. Under modern common law, an all-you-can-eat right to tenancy is very rare, not least because it is only possible if the parties expressly agree that the lease is rent-free, usually when a family member can live in a house (nominal consideration may be required) without a formal agreement. In most fixed-term rentals, the tenant should not be removed for reason, even if there is no written tenancy agreement.
