Lease with Option to Purchase
How To Use
This review list is provided to inform you about this document in question and assist you in its preparation. This is a simple lease with the added value of an option to purchase. A more complicated lease would often be used in a more standard lease circumstance. This form is more appropriate when the real objective is to encourage the tenant to purchase the property in question. In this circumstance, the tenant/buyer is usually better off financially and less of a risk if he or she remains just a tenant.
Therefore, the Landlord/owner generally has less to be concerned about on this part. Nevertheless, a strong lease is still advisable for the landlord.
Make multiple copies. Give one to each signatory. Keep one with the transaction file.
A guarantor line is provided should that be appropriate in the Landlord’s mind and acceptable to the tenant.
