A life lease is a form of rental housing which is usually aimed at tenants who are 55+. A life lease is a kind of written tenancy agreement. A life lease can be for the life of the tenant or for a specific term (e.g. 50 years). Under a life lease, a tenant pays an entrance fee for a rental unit. The tenant also pays rent each month to cover maintenance and other expenses.
