IS A LEASE-PURCHASE RIGHT FOR YOU?

THIS IS A QUESTION THAT IS COMING UP WITH MORE AND MORE FREQUENCY THESE DAYS:  “IS A LEASE PURCHASE AN OPTION FOR ME RIGHT NOW?”   

THE ANSWER:   IT DEPENDS.

YES… IF YOU ARE LEASING WHILE YOU’RE PULLING THE FUNDS FOR CLOSING TOGETHER.

NO…  IF YOU’RE THINKING THAT MAYBE ONE DAY YOU’LL BUY THE PROPERTY FOR WHAT YOU SET THE PRICE AS OF TODAY. 

OF COURSE THAT’S THE ABBREVIATED ANSWER.  A LEASE PURCHASE  CAN BE STRUCTURED IN A NUMBER OF WAYS BY A QUALIFIED  REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY, WITH CONTRACTUAL EARNEST MONEY DEPOSITS  AND TERMS SPECIFIED, AND PORTIONS OF THE LEASE AMOUNT POTENTIALLY CREDITED TOWARD THE PURCHASE PRICE.
