Leave and License Agreement

Leave and license agreement

the phrase "license" was defined in Section 52 of the Indian Easement Act, 1882, as follows: "Where one person grants to another, or to a definite number of other persons, a right to do, or continue to do, in or upon the immovable property of the grantor, something which would, in the absence of such right, be unlawful, and such right does not amount to an easement or an interest in the property, the right is called a license".

Licence does not create any interest in the premises in favour of the licensee excepting a mere right to use and occupy the premises for a limited duration in consideration of the price paid. Licence only creates a right or interest in the immovable property to do something, under the authority of the grantor of the licence. Every license is governed by the provisions under the Indian Easement Act. When any property is given on leave and license, the agreement is known as leave and license agreement.
