to rent / to rent out

In order to help a friend of mine who is renting out his appartment for the holidays,
I am looking after some german trasnlations.

From what I know, in english the verb "to rent" can be used both by landlords and 'tenants' (people who pay to get in the propertie)
whereas the verb 'to rent out' is used mainly by landlords

Are there such disctinctions in german? and if yes, which ones?

Thanks a million by advance

    English but my first language was German
    Mieten = rent, vermieten = rent out.

    Mieter = renter, Vermieter = landlord.
