There are two kinds of rental contracts:
that of things,
and that of work.
THE RENTAL OF THINGS
The rental of things is a contract by which one of the parties undertakes to make the other enjoy a thing for a certain time, and for a certain price that the latter is obliged to pay him.
To designate the leasing of things we use either the term “rental” or “lease”. When the object of the contract is a movable item, the term “rental” has become the most commonly used.
RENTAL OF WORKS
The work hire is a contract by which one of the parties undertakes to do something for the other, for a price agreed between them.
THE VARIOUS TYPES OF RENTALS
These two types of leasing are further subdivided into several particular types:
The leasing of houses and of furniture is called lease;
Farm lease, that of rural inheritances;
Rent, the hiring out of work or service;
Livestock lease, that of animals whose profit is shared between the owner and the one to whom he entrusts them.
The estimate, market or price made, for the company of a work for a determined price, are also a hire, when the material is provided by the one for whom the work is done.
These last three species have special rules.
Leases of national property, municipal property and public establishments are subject to specific regulations.
” You can rent all kinds of movable or immovable property”.
There are three main types of work and industry hire :
1. The hire of working people who engage in the service of someone ;
2 ° That of the carriers, both by land and by water, who take care of the transport of people or goods;
3 ° That of architects, building contractors and technicians following studies, estimates or contracts.
