Ownership is the obtaining of ownership from the owner and is most often negotiated with the lessor when a tenant pays only an inheritance tax. The merger is if the landlord and tenant look the same by chance and can terminate a lease if there are no subtenants in certain jurisdictions. Similar principles apply to both real estate and personal property, although the terminology is different. The right of subletting may or may not be allowed to a tenant. When permitted, the lease directly granted by the landlord is called “headlease” or sometimes “master-lase”. Headlease tenants and their tenants, who can also sublet, are called mesne /miːn/ Owner of the old French for mitte. The tenant of headlease is not entitled to the grant of a sublease that goes beyond the end of the headlease.
