A lease purchase is a combination of a real estate rental and real estate sale. It is a lease for a fixed time period such as 12 or 36 months with a provision that at the end of the lease period, the purchase agreement portion of the contract is executed.

A lease purchase allows a buyer to live in the home while you establish your credit, save for a down payment or otherwise prepare to buy.

A lease purchase gives the buyer the option to lock in the purchase price, then complete the purchase at anytime during the traditional 12-36 month lease period or as spelled out in the agreement.

How Does a Lease Purchase Work?

Lease purchase transactions usually require employment and income verification and often a completed mortgage application, to make sure that the buyer can afford the monthly lease payments and will qualify for a mortgage at the end of the lease term. Next, the deposit fee is paid in order to secure the current purchase price as well as a future closing date. Sometimes a portion of the monthly lease fee is applied to the purchase price of the home. Then, you are paired with a mortgage specialist to assist you with financing to close the deal. As the buyer's ability to qualify for a mortgage improves, the buyer and mortgage professional decided on when the purchase should take place subject to the terms of the lease purchase agreement.
