The West Virginia Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase is a legally binding document that will initially act as a lease, with the exception that there will be an available window, during the lease, that the tenant(s) will have an option to express their intention and act upon that intention to purchase the property in which they reside. This agreement is useful to those who would like to purchase but need more time to prepare to purchase. The tenant(s) should thoroughly review the agreement before signing. If the language of the agreement seems questionable, it’s recommended that the tenant’s employ the services of an attorney to clarify and provide proper legal advice.
