Create a high quality document online now!

The Tennessee Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase is a legal document that is created to begin as a lease agreement between a landlord/seller and tenant/buyer. Included in the language of the agreement would be an option, offered by the landlord, during the lease period, for the tenant(s) to purchase the property.

The document will act as a normal residential lease inasmuch as it will outline terms and conditions and any responsibilities that would be assumed by each party respectively and will detail how the option to purchase would work. Both parties must review all of the information in this lease. If either party finds that any part of it is difficult to understand, either side or both, may wish to consult with an attorney for legal guidance.
