Texas Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Texas Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase is a legal document that is designed to initially act as a regular residential lease, the difference being, with this particular document, the tenant(s) will have a window of time within the lease (in many cases for the term of the lease) in which they would be able to give notice to their landlord and make arrangements to purchase the property they are leasing. This works well for those tenant(s) who may need a little more time to arrange for payment of the property. It also allows them the opportunity to opt out should they so desire. Tenant(s) should read this agreement closely prior to signing to be certain that they understand how this procedure works. If at any point they find that they are unclear with regard to the language of the document, they may choose to consult with an attorney for clarity.
