Correspondingly, are lease options legal in Florida?
The renter is under no legal obligation though. In Florida, lease-to-own agreements are popular and should be structured similar to a rental lease with a clause added for an option to buy. Many contracts are for two years with the option to buy any time after a year. Agree on a final sales price on the property.
Subsequently, question is, how do you structure a lease purchase agreement? In a standard Lease-Purchase Contract, the two parties agree to a lease period during which rent is paid, and the terms of the sale at the end of the lease period, including sale price. Often, the contract is structured in two parts, one representing the lease term and the other a contract of sale.
Regarding this, how does a lease option work?
A lease-option is a contract in which a landlord and tenant agree that, at the end of a specified period, the renter can buy the property. The tenant pays an up-front option fee and an additional amount each month that goes toward the eventual down payment.
What is the difference between a lease purchase and a lease option?
A lease option is different from a lease purchase contract, in that a lease purchase binds both parties to the sale, whereas in a lease-option the buyer has the option but the seller does not.
