North Dakota Lease Agreement plus Option to Purchase

Create a high quality document online now!

The North Dakota Lease Agreement plus Option to Purchase is a legal document that is created between a landlord/owner and tenant, that provides a leasing tenant, the option to purchase the leased property anytime during the lease period or the period specified by the owner. The agreement will advise how long the option to purchase will be open to the tenant(s) and usually what percentage of all of the rental payments will be applied toward down payment of the property. The agreement should be expected to be structured much like a standard inasmuch as it will detail all responsibilities with regard to the tenant as well as the responsibilities with regard to the landlord. If the information in the document is not clear to the tenant, they may choose to consult with an attorney to ensure that they are confident that they clearly understand the document they will be signing.
