We agree a price with you at the time you sell your property to us and that price remains fixed for the period of the buy back option. However, whilst we are tied in and cannot sell to anyone else, you are not; should you change your mind and not want to buy the property back then you do not have to.

A: “Lease Options” allow Investors to “take control” of the running costs & responsibility of a property, without actually purchasing it immediately.
