Leasehold Estate

    The leasehold estate in land (which is often shortened to a leasehold estate, a leasehold, a lease or tenancy) is a type of land right known as the Estate in Land (Estate). The technical name for a leasehold estate is the Term of Years Absolute. There are two types of Estates, the other type being the Freehold Estate. The holder(s) of each Estate gain rights to the land or property. Freeholders gain full ownership rights. Leaseholders and tenants, gain exclusive possession of the property for a specific amount of time.
