    Default 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

    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.
