Non-legal words

“Lessee” is the tenant under a contractual tenancy.

Because in everyday use it is conventional to use the term “lease” when referring to longer tenancies, the “lessee” in a supported accommodation scheme tends to mean the charity or voluntary organisation to whom the accommodation has been leased by its owner, rather than the individuals who occupy the property.
