A lease to purchase option is simply a contract between parties that states the leasee has the option to buy the subject property at the end of the lease time frame. This type of agreement is used in real estate to purchase a home. The lease to purchase agreement is not a combination lease and purchase and sale, but merely a lease contract that includes an option to buy the property. The option is not a demand buy, but the exclusive right to exercise the option and purchase the property. At the end of the lease, the leasee is not required to purchase the property, and if the option is not exercised a call to movers in Melbourne might be necessary if the tenant decides to move and not sign a new agreement.
Under a lease to purchase option, the leasee pays the owner of the property an option deposit that is non refundable. The option deposit is applied to the purchase price of the property. The leasee then pays the property owner monthly rent and a portion of that rent is applied to the purchase price and/or down payment. During the life of the agreement or just before the lease to purchase option expires, the leasee has the exclusive right to buy the property under the terms of the agreement. However, under a weird agreement, the person that pays the deposit and rent may not live their until the agreement is executed, which means the call to movers in Melbourne will be necessary.
The lease to purchase contract is the most efficient, not to mention quickest and easiest way to purchase or sell a home or invest in real estate. It is a win-win situation for both buyer and seller. What this means for the buyer is a lower out of pocket expense and instead of saving for a home and waiting years to buy, the savings for a house is being applied to the purchase under the agreement. This type of home buying contract will even allow a buyer to offer up increased buying power without a huge out of pocket expense and money available to hire removalists in Melbourne.
The benefit to the buyer is usually a lower upfront cost in the form of a lease to purchase deposit. The benefit to the owner is the deposit is non refundable. If the tenant decides not to exercise the option for any reason, it is money in pocket for the owner who can establish the same agreement with another tenant.
People that want to buy through the lease to purchase option is often willing to pay a deposit and higher rent, knowing the payments will be applied to the purchase price. This type of home purchase often eliminates the need for realtor involvement and the commission in sales paid to the realtor. The tenants have a vested interest in the property and will tend to take care of the property. Once the agreement is finalized, and the renter becomes the legal owner, removalists in Melbourne will not need to be called as the owner is already in place.
