Usage notes[edit]

Technically, in common legal usage, the term should refer only to the party who owns the property and allows another to rent it. The party paying for the use of the property is properly termed a rentee. However, common usage is to use the term to refer to the party paying for use of the property, and this usage has seeped into legal parlance as well.

Etymology 2[edit]

From French rentraire; Latin prefix re- ‎(re-) + in ‎(into, in) + trahere ‎(to draw).

Verb[edit]

renter ‎(third-person singular simple present renters, present participle rentering, simple past and past participle rentered)

  1. to sew together so that the seam is scarcely visible; to sew up with skill and nicety; to finedraw.
  2. to restore the original design of (a tapestry) by working in new warp.
