I would ask you if you could explain me differences between words: hire, rent and lease.
Both 'to rent' and 'to hire' can mean to pay money to borrow sth for a short time: to hire a car / room / video. Rent, in this meaning is used most in American English, and hire in British English.
'To hire' can also mean to give sb a job: "She was hired three years ago" or to employ sb for a short time to do a particular job: to hire a lawyer.
'To rent' and 'to lease' also mean to regularly pay money to sb so that you can use sth that they own, such as a house, some land, a machine.
