The concept of rental derives from Hispanic Arabic alkira or alkali, which in turn comes from classical Arabic kira '. The term is used to name the action and effect of renting , and at price to whom something is rented.
The verb to rent, on the other hand, consists of pay an agreed amount between the parties to make use of a property or furniture for a certain period of time , although unfortunately it is also possible that it is granted to an animal for rent, as if it were a thing. This practice is usually governed by a lease, which imposes rights and obligations to both parties.
In its most basic sense, the contract Rent or lease obliges the lessor (or landlord) to temporarily transfer the use of a piece of furniture or real estate to the tenant (or tenant), who is obliged to pay a certain price for that use.
This price can be paid periodically (for example, monthly), with what is constituted as a rent. Another alternative is that the price is paid in one go , either at the beginning or at the end of the rental.
It is also possible that the price is not paid in money, but in species . This modality is common when what is rented is a field or an estate, and the tenant pays with the crops or products that he obtains from the exploitation of the leased thing.
The landlord is in a position to demand the end of your contract in the absence of payment of the rent, the use of the leased thing in contravention of the agreement or the damage serious that the lessee could cause the leased.
In some countries the request for loans to the bank to embark on the purchase of a house, and this custom has decreased significantly in recent years given the different economic problems that are associated with the already known World crisis. Many people planned their lives around this practice, through which they could take over a home and one or more cars as soon as they became independent from their parents, with the convenience of paying for their possessions over several decades. All the happiness and ease that at some point this lifestyle may have meant has become a torture that has led some to suicide in the face of the impossibility of paying off their debts.
Opposite to the situation of this sector of the population is that of those who depend on a rental to have a living place or part of it, in the case of who rents a room. For a long time these people have been looked upon with an evil eye, noting that they do not care about building a future, and comparing the payment of a rent with the waste of money. However, today it is more cautious who complies with a roof, even if it is not their own, and tries to enjoy their lives that those who in the eagerness to settle permanently in a place risk their physical and mental health to submit to payment of a mortgage.
In addition to houses and cars, other of the products Commonly found for rent are movies and video games. In both cases, its popularity declined considerably since piracy became widespread and became accessible to everyone, whether through illegal Internet downloads or sales on public roads. Apart from the percentage of losses generated by robberies to the film and recreational industries, legal income does not represent an important source of profit, but of promotion.
