State Bank of Pakistan - The Central Bank i) In Ijara/leasing, the corpus of leased commodity remains in the ownership of the lessor and only its usufruct is transferred to the lessee. Any thing which cannot be used without consuming the same cannot be leased out like money, edibles, fuel, etc. Only such assets which are owned by the lessor can be leased out except that a sub-lease is effected by the lessee with the express permission of the lessor. ii) Until such time that assets to be leased are delivered to the lessee, lease rentals do not become due and payable. iii) During the entire term of the lease, the lessor must retain title to the assets, and bear all risks and rewards pertaining to ownership. However, if any damage or loss is caused to the leased assets due to the fault or negligence of the lessee, the consequences thereof shall be borne by the lessee. The consequences arising from non-customary use of the asset without mutual agreement will also be borne by the lessee. The lessee is also responsible for all risks and consequences in relation to third party liability, arising from or incidental to operation or use of the leased assets. iv) The insurance of the leased asset should be in the name of lessor and the cost of such insurance borne by him. (It is hoped that arrangement shall soon be made for Islamic Takaful to replace the existing insurance system).. v) A lease can be terminated before expiry of the term of the lease but only with the mutual consent of the parties. vi) Either party can make a unilateral promise to buy/sell the assets upon expiry of the term of lease, or earlier at a price and at such terms and conditions as are agreed, provided that the lease agreement shall not be conditional upon such sale. Alternatively, the lessor may make a promise to gift the asset to the lessee upon termination of the lease, provided the lessee has fulfilled all his obligations. However, there shall not be any stipulation in the lease agreement purporting to transfer of ownership of the leased assets at a future date. vii) The amount of rental must be agreed in advance in an unambiguous manner either for the full term of the lease or for a specific period in absolute terms. viii) Assignment of only the lease rentals is not permissible except at par value. ix) Contract of lease will be considered terminated if the leased asset ceases to give the service for which it was rented. However, if the leased asset is damaged during the period of the contract but is capable of being repaired, the contract will remain valid.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
