Definition of 'Lessor: Definition, Types, Vs. Landlord and Lessee'
There are two main types of lessors:
* Financial lessors: These lessors are primarily interested in making money from the lease payments. They typically do not have a use for the asset themselves and are not involved in its operation.
* Operating lessors: These lessors are primarily interested in using the asset themselves. They may lease the asset to another company in order to get access to it without having to purchase it outright.
The relationship between a lessor and a lessee is governed by a lease agreement. This agreement specifies the terms of the lease, such as the length of the lease, the rental payments, and the conditions under which the asset can be used.
