Lease execution date is the date that the lease is signed by both the Landlord and Tenant. Then it is fully executed.
Lease commencement date is the date on which the lease starts/commences.
Rent commencement on the other hand is when the Tenant commences to pay rent. In most instances Tenants are given a rent free period at the start of a lease.
