Conditions of property given on lease

2284. The property which is given on lease, should fulfil certain conditions:

I. It should be specific. Hence, if a person says to another: “I have given you one of my houses on lease,” it is not in order.

II. The person taking the property on lease should see it, or the lessor should give its particulars in a manner, which gives full information about it.

III. It should be possible to deliver it. Hence, leasing out a horse, which has run away, will be void.

IV. Utilization of the property should not be by way of its destruction or consumption. Hence, it is not correct to give bread, fruits and other edibles on lease.

V. It should be possible to utilize the property for the purpose for which it is given on lease. Hence, it is not correct to give a piece of land on lease for farming, when it does not get sufficient rain water, and is also not irrigated by canal water.

VI. The thing, which a person gives on lease should be his own property, and if he gives the property of another person on lease, it will be correct only if its owner agrees to it.

2285. It is permissible to give a tree on lease for utilizing its fruit.

2286. A woman can be hired for her milk, and it is not necessary for her to obtain her husband’s permission. However, if her husband’s right suffers owing to her giving milk, she cannot take up the job without his permission.
