    Lease, Rent, greeting card for removal

    1) What are the differences in usage and meaning between the verbs
    lease andrent?

    2) My sister's family has just rented and moved into a new apartment.

    a) Are the following wordings on the greeting card for her removal
    acceptable?

    - Happy removal to a sweet sweet family!
    - Congratulation to your grand removal!
    - Happy sweet sweet home, congratulation!

    b) Any other suggestion to make it less formal but more lively since
    the recipients are very close to me?

    Thanks / ju

    Re: Lease, Rent, greeting card for removal

    If you lease a car, say, one company buys it, but your company uses it, pays the other company installments and doesn't own it until the very end of the process. With property, a lease is like owning a property but for a limited period of time.

    Congratulations on your move.
    Hope your move goes well.
    Hope all goes well with the move.
