You reap the reward for an unplanned (not well managed ?) network.
You may want to consider reserved leases. These act like normal
leases, but cannot be re-allocated to another client.
So you get the benefit of having a "fixed" address for a client, but
also the advantages of following the normal lease lifecycle (so DNS
updates work for example).

Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
