optilangHe leased an/one acre of land from Mr A.
Thanks Optilang.

But what will it mean when I just say "He leased an/one acre of land"?
He gave or received the land?
Hi

He leased from = he received

He leased to = he gave

He leased = not clear, could be either, but context generally helps.

I lease the cars in my company. A friend told me of a very good leasing company. They lease cars.
Thanks.
