Hello, Lauren! Demise refers to the act of transferring legal rights, custody, attributes or other related aspects from one party to another or from one person to another. In real estate, demise can also mean a conveyance of property. The transfer of property for lifetime or for a determined amount of time. The term is loosely used to describe any conveyance. Demise is sometimes used synonymously with a lease, by which one conveys property, land or services to another for a determined amount of time. Also, having a short term lease or a long term lease is debatable and we have an article that highlights the pros and cons of short term leases.
