Lease Hold is the property where any Govt. Body like Delhi Development Authority (DDA) or Municipal Corporation property provide the property to enjoy for the certain period of time it may be for 30 year or for 60 years or for 99 years. Such property may be utilized and enjoyed by the Holder but it does not give any right to the Lease Holder to transfer it your own heirs. After the expiry of the certain period for which the property was owed to you your rights over the property automatically expires and the concern body or lessor body have legal right to take the possession back. In other word it can be said in lease Hold you are not the absolute owner of the property. You are like Tenant in the property without any hassle/interference of owner.
