TITLE IX. LEASE
CHAPTER 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
Art. 2668. Contract of lease defined
Lease is a synallagmatic contract by which one party, the lessor, binds himself to give to the other party, the lessee, the use and enjoyment of a thing for a term in exchange for a rent that the lessee binds himself to pay.
The consent of the parties as to the thing and the rent is essential but not necessarily sufficient for a contract of lease.
