Residential lease agreements fall under that branch of Agreement Forms, which deals with leasing rooms or renting out residential buildings that you own. (This is vastly different from residential sublease agreements.)
With these forms, a property owner (called the lessor or landlord) comes into agreement with a tenant (lessee) who wishes to pay to rent the property for a length of time.
