Vermont Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Vermont Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase is a legal document that is designed to initially be a lease for a tenant who may not be prepared to purchase property but would be interested in purchasing in the near future. This agreement will provide an agreement whereas the tenant will have a window of time within the length of the lease to have an option to purchase when/if they decide they would be interested in doing so. The lease is equally as detailed as a regular rental agreement with a provision to purchase at a later date. Tenant(s) should read this agreement carefully. If it’s too complicated to understand they may choose to consult with an attorney.
