The Mississippi lease to own (option to purchase) agreement is a document that is used between the tenant(s) and landlords when the landlord is interested in selling a property and a tenant may be interested in purchasing the property at a future date.

This document, with completion by the landlord, will create a complete, legal agreement between the parties, that will provide both a lease agreement and an agreement to allow the tenant the time to prepare to purchase the property within an agreed time frame, usually six months to one year. It will provide all of the information for both parties, a full lease agreement and sets a deadline for the tenant to notify the landlord of their intention to purchase.

The tenant should carefully review the document before the application of signature(s) to ensure that they understand the language of the document. If they are uncertain, they should consult with an attorney for clarification. One witness is required to be present to sign the document.
