Synonyms of "Lease" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between lease and rent ?
A: their definitions are similar, but when used in life, they are different
Q: What is the difference between lease and rent ?
A: For most purposes in lay (non-lawyer) use, there’s not any real difference, not one that’s legally mandated just by the label (choice of word) alone. One can rent or lease to or from someone. From a legal standpoint, what counts isn’t the name at the top of the pieces of paper, but the detailed written terms. In some fields, like real estate, vehicle, or equipment/software deals, the people in the field may have tendencies to try to distinguish the two by name, using “lease” for longer-running agreements maybe with buyout options at the end and only a single fixed period, and using “rent” for shorter-running, maybe automatically renewing, agreements with no special options at the end. But what counts isn’t the label; it’s what the detailed written provisions say. They, not the label, control how long the deal lasts, whether it renews or not and when, whether the financial bits (how much yo pay) can be changed and if so when, etc. In theory, I could have a week-to-week lease of something, or a four-year rental contract. But in terms of grammar and general lay understanding (not legal advice or industry terminologies life preferences), you can probably treat them as basically the same. This is not legal advice, of course; merely a note on usage patterns for a lay person. And it all varies by jurisdiction, from state to state and country. When I spent a month in Czechia, I couldn’t “rent” a computer — but I could buy one, with the right at any time within 30 days to force the company to but it back from me at a slightly lower price. The difference in price depended on how many days I had been “the owner,” before having the company “re-buy” it from me. For most basic purposes, I rented it or leased it. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, but the end effects are close enough in the typical case to make the labels not too important.
Q: What is the difference between on lease and on rent ?
A: We usually don't say on lease or on rent, we say for lease or for rent, but I would assume "none of these toys on lease" means the owner bought all of the cars, he didn't lease them. In the US, it is common to lease cars for a period of years and then you give them back to the dealership. He might be trying to say "Look I have enough money to buy all these cars, I'm not just leasing them."
Q: What is the difference between lease agreement and lease contract ?
A: can have an agreement BEFORE you have a contract.

For example, you offer me five dollars for my book. I say yes. We now have an agreement. We can then write a contract that details our agreement.
Q: What is the difference between lease and rent and hire ?
A: Here is what I think the difference is:

You hire a person: I hired a maid. We hired a new engineer.

You rent something when you pay to use it for a fixed (usually short) period and then give it back: I rented a bicycle at the park. I rented a car on my vacation.

You lease something that you do not have a plan to give back in the near future: I leased a Honda and I love driving it to work. I leased an apartment across the river. Our company leased the equipment instead of buying it.

(Americans usually say "I rented an apartment" instead of "leased," although they still refer to the agreement they sign to rent an apartment as "a lease.")
