Law/Patents - Law (general) / Rent Contract
French term or phrase: Location-Gerance
Il ne peut en aucun cas donner en location-gerance son fonds de commerce.

If i understand well it is renting out your business to a third party against payment of rent.

Is there an English translation for the term?

disagree  Christopher RH: I really strongly disagree with this answer. I know it is in GDT and in the glossary but it just does not give the right meaning.

lease (of a business) to management

The business is owned by one party, who then leases the business to management.

GDT gives "lease management" and the Kudoz glossary includes variations on this theme, but all of these solutions imply that what is actually *being managed* is the lease, which is totally wrong.

alternatively: a \"management lease\"

Final bit of explanation for the whole \"lease management\" shebang.

One thing that you can find, apparently in the USA, is what seems to be properly called a \"license, lease, and management agreement\".
eg http://www.democratandchronicle.com/news/pdf/ferry.pdf

For hotels, you often find \"operating lease and management agreement\"

And so, sometimes, this gets contracted down to \"lease management agreement\".
This Indian site, for example, defines it as such:

If you delete the \"agreement\", however, you completely change the meaning.

Like a banana split without the \"split\": 99% of the substance disappears :)

agree  xxxdf49f: oui oui et oui! too bad asker (legal expert ? though he/she may claim to be) was in such a hurrry to close - et dommage pour une nouvelle entrée incorrecte au glossaire :( // arghhhhhh :((( indeed!! :)

  -> Thanks for the support. One of the glossary entries also uses the GDT. Another uses an answer by Francis Marc which did NOT contain "lease management" but ended up that way as glossary entry (by the Asker, perhaps). argh. :(

agree  Yolanda Broad: Termium gives: "en location-gérance" = "on a leasing-management basis"; "location-gérance": management agreement;. Good, solid references for both terms. Eurdicautom: "l-g de fonds de commerce" = " business leasing-management"
