This is made up of two parts: A lease, or rental agreement, and an option. They may be written together as one contract or as two. The Lease is simply a rental agreement between the owner and the potential lessee (tenant). Often these leases will be “triple net lease” leases (NNN) in which the lessee is responsible for paying for the taxes, insurance, maintenance, and upkeep of the property. The lease payment is typically 5-15% higher than rent might be for the same property. This type of lease can be structured so that the lessee can take the tax benefits as if he were the home owner.
