Ground Agreement Definition
On March 5, Pike ordained William Augustus Magee, who had led the American contingent in 1810 to the unsan governed area. The expedition destroyed eleven houses with several tent camps they met. They took 16 men and thirty-five horses and mules and recovered stolen goods, weapons and ammunition. This unilateral violation of the neutral land agreement ended Spanish-American cooperation along the Texas-Louisiana borders. With the war with the British, American officials diverted their attention from the East and the South and subjected the inhabitants on both sides of the border to unrelenting slander. On the other hand, a non-subordinate basic lease allows the lessor to retain the absolute priority of the rights to the property if the tenant cannot benefit from the loan for improvements. Since the lender is not allowed to return to the country if the loan is not paid, credit professionals may be reluctant to extend a mortgage for improvements. Although the landlord retains ownership of the property, they usually have to charge the tenant a lower amount of rent. The area covered by the agreement has been declared off-border for soldiers from both countries. The agreement also provided that no settlers would be allowed in neutral soil. However, settlers from New Spain and the United States began to move in. After the territory was recognized as part of the United States, these settlers obtained third-class rights.
 (Those with Spanish land subsidies prior to the sale of Louisiana Purchase to the United States obtained first-rate claims.) Some of the U.S. settlers would form the nucleus of the Louisiana Redbone community. This lawless area has also attracted exiles, deserters, political refugees, luck-hunters and a multitude of criminals. Finally, highway drivers organized to the point of occupying outposts and organizing spies to better escape travelers and avoid the American and Spanish military.  In 1810 and 1812, both governments sent joint military expeditions into the territory to drive out outlaws. Although mainly used in the industrial sector, basic rents are very different from other types of commercial leases found in commercial complexes and office buildings. As a general rule, these other leases do not assign the taker to the responsibility of the unit. Instead, these tenants are charged rent to do their business.
