What are “executory contracts” and “unexpired leases”?

An executory contract is a contract where both parties still have important things to do.  An equipment lease is an executory contract.

An unexpired lease is a lease that is ongoing like a car or truck lease or an apartment lease. 

Common contracts and leases are apartment leases, car leases, cell phone contracts, internet or cable provider agreements, year-long gym memberships, timeshare agreements, listing agreements with realtors.
