Are you thinking of Leasing some IPv4?
Do you want to offload some of your IPv4 and have considered leasing it?
Are you thinking you might want the space in the future so you don’t want to commit to it selling yet?
This video is an FAQ about leasing IPv4 for someone who has excess resources and is thinking about potentially leasing them out.
We actually recommend that people sell IP address space instead of leasing it and here are 3 reasons why.
When the leasing term is finished if there is any problems getting the range back there could be legal issues. APNIC can’t force anyone to stop routing anything, you have to go to their upstream and beg them to cut them off which is unlikely to work. That being said this is just in-country. But APNIC is a large region covering 54 economies so this could be much more complicated and expensive when trying to deal between countries. There is no policing of these matters yet, there are some things happening soon but they aren’t here yet.
If the Lessee had permission to route it once it is hard to revoke that permission which means they could announce it again and cause significant outages and end up with routing wars.
What the lessees can do while they are in possession of the range they could ruin the reputation. Remember you are the owner and potentially responsible.
We really recommend that if you have excess resources that you don’t need it is best just to sell them.

This video is an FAQ about leasing resources for someone who needs some extra IP space
We actually recommend that people purchase IP address space instead of leasing it and here are 3 reasons why.
Your leased IP addresses could be disputed/withdrawn at any time which could lead to instability and risk in your network. For example if the owner wanted to sell it or if they went into administration your rights don’t have much chance of being recognised by a new party or controlling interest.
Time to implement and de-implement can be significant and complex. Permanently implementing is just a single step process whereas renumbering 1000’s of end users can take a lot of effort
You could come across legal complications if they terminate. Which could mean going to courts which don’t know what you are talking about. At the moment there is no agreed upon legal framework for these kinds of cases. Many countries have rights for tenants of rental property, even though leasing IP space is a lot like that there is no such arrangement currently for IPv4.
We really recommend that if you need some extra resources that you make the investment and purchase the IP address space.
