N: 1. “one who grants a lease,” late 14c., from Anglo-French lessor (late 13c.), from verb lesser “to let, to leave” (10c., Modern French laisser), from Latin laxare, from laxus “loose” (from PIE root *sleg- “be slack, be languid”).
2. Law: a person or company that leases property (such as a car or house) to someone.
3. At its core, a lessor is someone who owns a property, object, trademark, business, or any other piece of real or intellectual property. The lessee pays the lessor for the right to use said property.
4. Term to be avoided: leasor.
leasor; leasee: these are laymen’s blunders for “lessor” and lessee.
