Leasehold estate

A leasehold estate is an ownership of a temporary right to hold land or property in which a lessee or a tenant holds rights of real property by some form of title from a lessor or landlord. Although a tenant does hold rights to real property, a leasehold estate is considered personal property. Leasehold is a form of land tenure or property tenure where one party buys the right to occupy land or a building for a given length of time; as lease is a legal estate, leasehold estate can be sold on the open market. A leasehold thus differs from a freehold or fee simple where the ownership of a property is purchased outright and thereafter held for an indeterminate length of time, differs from a tenancy where a property is let on a periodic basis such as weekly or monthly; until the end of the lease period the leaseholder has the right to remain in occupation as an assured tenant paying an agreed rent to the owner. Terms of the agreement are contained in a lease, which has elements of contract and property law intertwined.

The term estate for years may be used. This refers to a leasehold estate for any specific period of time An estate for years is not automatically renewed. Colloquially, "lease" and "leasing" are a formalization of a longer, specific period as compared with a "rental" that created a tenancy at will, terminable or renewable at the end of the lease period. Laws governing landlord-tenant relationships can be found as far back as the Code of Hammurabi. However, the common law of the landlord-tenant relation evolved in England during the Middle Ages; that law still retains many archaic terms and principles pertinent to a feudal social order and an agrarian economy, where land was the primary economic asset and ownership of land was the primary source of rank and status. See Lord of the Manor. Modern leasehold estates can take one of four forms—the fixed-term tenancy or tenancy for years, the periodic tenancy, the tenancy at will, the tenancy at sufferance. Forms no longer used include burgage; when a landowner allows one or more persons, called "tenants", to use the land in some way for some fixed period of time, the land becomes a leasehold, the resident- landowner relation is called a "tenancy".

A tenant pays rent to the landowner. The leasehold can include other improvements to the land; the tenant can live on it, or practice a trade on it. Leasehold estates are held by tenants for a specific period of time, such as 99 years. Tenancy was essential to the feudal hierarchy. Leasehold estates can still be Crown land today. For example, in the Australian Capital Territory, all private land "ownerships" are leaseholds of Crown land. In the US, there are food co-ops. Rural tenancy is a common practice. Under a rural tenancy, a person buys a large amount of land and the rural community uses it agriculturally as a source of income. A fixed-term tenancy or tenancy for years lasts for some fixed period of time. Despite the name, such a tenancy can last for any period of time – a tenancy for one week would be called a tenancy for years. At common law the duration did not need to be certain, but could be conditioned upon the happening of some event. In many jurisdictions that possibility has been or abolished.

The tenancy will come to an end automatically when the fixed term runs out, or, in the case of a tenancy that ends on the happening of an event, when the event occurs. It is possible for a tenant, either expressly or impliedly, to give up the tenancy to the landlord; this process is known as a surrender of the lease. A tenancy may come to an end when and if the tenant accepts a buyout agreement from their landlord; the landlord is able to offer to buy the property back from their tenant for a negotiated price as long as the deal is agreed upon by both parties. A periodic tenancy known as a tenancy from year to year, month to month, or week to week, is an estate that exists for some period of time determined by the term of the payment of rent. An oral lease for a tenancy of years that violates the statute of frauds may create a periodic tenancy, the construed term being dependent on the laws of the jurisdiction where the leased premises are located. In many jurisdictions the "default" tenancy, where the parties have not explicitly specified a different arrangement, where none is presumed under local or business custom, is the month-to-month tenancy.

A tenancy at will or estate at will is a leasehold such that either the landlord or the tenant may terminate the tenancy at any time by giving reasonable notice. It occurs in the absence of a lease, or where the tenancy is not for consideration. Under the modern common law, tenancy at will can arise under the following circumstances: the parties expressly agree that the tenancy is at will and not for rent. A family member is allowed to live at home without formal arrangement. A nominal consideration may be required. A tenant wishes to occupy the property urgently, but there was insufficient time to negotiate and execute a lease; the tenancy at will terminates in this case as soon as a written lease is completed. If a lease fails to be realized, the tenant must vacate the property. In a residential lease for consideration, a tenant ma

Trafficking in Persons Report

The Trafficking in Persons Report, or the TIP Report, is an annual report issued by the U. S. State Department's Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons, it ranks governments based on their perceived efforts to combat human trafficking. The report divides nations into tiers based on their compliance with standards outlined in the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000; these tiers are: Tier 1 countries whose governments comply with the TVPA's minimum standards. Tier 2 countries whose governments do not comply with an TVPA’s minimum standards, but are making significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with those standards. Tier 2 watchlist countries whose governments do not comply with the TVPA’s minimum standards, but are making significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with those standards and: The absolute number of victims of severe forms of trafficking is significant or is increasing. Tier 3 countries whose governments do not comply with the minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so.

There a few special cases such as Yemen, where the civil conflict and humanitarian crisis make gaining information difficult. Some critics of the Trafficking in Persons Report focus on. For example, one recent academic paper suggests how the rankings could better incorporate risk factors of trafficking in order to focus more on prevention. Another critic argues that the Report should better incorporate "international rules that states have collectively developed and accepted," rather than focusing on criteria drawn up by U. S. politicians. Other critics more fundamentally question its methodology and sources, such as anthropologist Laura Agustín, who writes that the Report "relies on CIA, police and embassy guesstimates of situations that are not understood the same way across all cultures and social classes." As part of the report the Department of State announces the awarding of the Hero Acting to End Modern Slavery Awards to a number of individuals. The first such awards were made in 2004.

Awards are made for actions taken to protect victims, bring offenders to justice or to raise awareness of modern slavery. More than 110 individuals from more than 60 countries have been honoured so far. Award winners are invited to a large reception in the United States followed by a tour of several American cities.

García made headlines by writing a letter of complaint back to the Minister. Dr. María Córdova, Professor of Music and Art criticized the song in the Cuban Communist Party daily Granma, in the article "Vulgarity in our music: the choice of the'Cuban people'?", arguing that such songs are offensive because of their machismo as well as "reducing sexual relations to the level at which a prostitute would have them. Vulgarity has never been the essence of Cuban music. Music is not always art, not everything that sounds like music is valid from an artistic point of view". A few days prior to that the Cuban state criticized reggaeton music in general, recommended a "low" level of broadcasting of songs of the genre.

The song's video was nominated in several categories for the November 2011 Premios Lucas. As of March 2012 the song was still banned from the Cuban airwaves by the Cuban Institute of Radio and Television.
