Create a high quality document online now!

The Oklahoma Residential Lease to Own Agreement is a legal document that is created to begin as a lease between a Lessor/seller and Lessee/buyer and will offer an option to purchase, during the period of the lease agreement for the premises that the Lessee(s) are leasing.

A Lessor may use this document to offer a clear understanding of all of the terms and conditions with regard to the use of a residential property as well as explain the option terms. This document will perform as a lease agreement initially, as it will outline monthly payment information and any responsibilities to be assumed by the lessor/seller and the lessee/buyer.

This document will also offer explanation with regard to how the purchase option will work between the parties and will carefully detail in writing, all of the needed information for both the landlord/seller and the tenant/buyer

The Lessee(s), should they choose this option as a possibility of home ownership, must carefully review, understand and agree to the entitre document before application of signatures. If the Lessee(s) find that they are not in complete understanding with regard to the language, they may wish  to consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate law, to ensure that they understand and are very clear with what they are signing and how it will work to their benefit.
