Ellipsis in arrendamiento para uso distinto

The expression arrendamiento para uso distinto immediately prompts the question ¿distinto a qué? The complete expression with its ellipted part included is arrendamiento para uso distinto del de vivienda and is used in Spain to refer to the “leasing of non-residential property” (literally, “leasing for use other than as a residence.”) In that regard, in reference to real estate the expression uso distinto refers to “non-residential use” or “use for non-residential purposes.” And contrato de arrendamiento para uso distinto denotes a “contract to lease property for non-residential purposes” that may often be translated simply as a “non-residential lease.”
