The secret to creating wealth through property

What is a Lease Option?

A lease option is simple, it is a legal document giving the bearer the right, but not the obligation, to buy the property at a certain price within a certain timeframe and during that timeframe you pay the monthly rent, with or without a tenant in the property.

Lease options can be extremely flexible and you can use them in a number of different and creative ways, including an option where you rent the property out, an option which you then sell on, an option where you can add value to the property and then sell it on the open market, an option where you sell it on the open market at a later stage or you can even sell a property you already own using a lease option.
