The South Dakota Lease with Option to Purchase is a legal document that is written between a Buyer/Tenant and a Seller/Landlord, that will operate as a lease while having the option to purchase the property while they are in the lease. This document will provide all of the protections and responsibility specifications of a lease to both parties. It will also explain how the option to purchase will work, should the tenants decide this is what that would like to do. Tenants should take the time to read through the entire document. If they aren’t sure about how the process works from a legal standpoint, consider contacting and consulting with an attorney for legal advice.
