Good morning. A rental agreement and a lease agreement are basically the same thing...you are simply agreeing to rent/lease space to a tenant. That is the format you will want to use and the title of these documents being different basically only means two different parties drafted them. A license agreement is really not applicable...i a license agreement is really only applicable when you are entering into an agreement to use someone's technology, patent, software, trademark, or other intangible asset. You are simply renting space...so you want to use a Rental or Lease Agreement.
I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

Other than one being titled a Rental Agreement and one being titled a Lease Agreement, there is no difference...each is doing the exact same thing...providing for a tenant to rent space. It's like if you are buying a property, one attorney might title the document an Contract for Sale while another might title it Purchase and Sale Agreement...they do exactly the same thing.
