Lease specification

Creating the lease is the first step when booking an appointment. The partner backend verifies that the requested appointment slot is valid and still available. Internally, the partner creates a temporary hold for the requested slot, which is set up to expire automatically at lease_expiration_time. The backend is allowed to modify lease_expiration_time, e.g. if the requested lease time is excessively long. The created lease is returned to the client.
