What is a Lease Option?
A lease option contract resembles a no strings attached property test drive. Lease options are commonly referred to as a lease option agreements.
Lease option contracts provide an OPTION, without the OBLIGATION to buy
A lease option agreement means that the buyer subject to an upfront payment of a consideration amount which can be as low as one pound (the option fee) is given the right to purchase the property at a later point in time as specified in the contract. As the term implies, the buyer has the option to buy not an obligation to purchase.
Are Lease Options legal in the UK?
Lease option contracts are legal in the UK dependent on the wording and the individual circumstances. Buyers can register restrictions with the HM Land Registry to protect their right to purchase at a later date in terms of a Lease Option Contract.
Having Legal Trouble?
We encourage the parties to use specialist lease option lawyers. Creative Legals has a team of specialist lease option lawyers who help lease option property investors.
The concept of option agreements is an old age legal concept that has been practiced in the UK and many other countries. An option contract allows the buyer to buy at a later date contingent on specific terms stated in the agreement being met. It is from this very same concept that lease option contracts operate.

Eviction is the safe, legal way to rid yourself of a tenant in London who doesn’t respect the terms of their tenancy agreement, regularly makes late rent payments or fails to care for your property the way they should. Keeping a bad tenant, instead of evicting around can severely harm your bottom line and can even strain your relationship with the property’s neighbours – or neighbouring landlords.
Creative Legals’ experienced tenant eviction team are standing by, ready to help you remove problematic tenants in London quickly, efficiently, and above all with all propriety and attention to detail. We get to know you, your property and your situation in order to find the best and fastest ways to get you back into possession of the property and in a position to rent it out again profitably.
What is tenant eviction?
There is a set procedure for removing a tenant from your property if they have violated the terms of your tenancy agreement or committed certain other actions. The law sets out very clear procedures that a landlord has to follow in order to evict a tenant legally, and if you do not follow them you could suffer penalties for attempting to evict someone illegally or for harassment of a tenant.
What are the legal reasons for evicting a tenant in London?
There are actually quite a few, more than we could easily list here. But the most common legally acceptable reasons for evictions these days are:
- Damaging the property or allowing it to fall into disrepair
- Engaging in anti-social behaviour
- Late or unpaid rent
- Not complying with the rental agreement or other contract, perhaps by keeping a pet or smoking in the property.
- Providing you with false information, references or credit card details (either upon application or later)
What is included in a Creativelegals eviction in London?
If you choose to instruct us as your solicitors in a tenant eviction procedure, we’ll learn all about you, your property and your tenant. Once we understand the situation properly, we’ll typically take the following steps:
1) We’ll serve notice of your intent to eviction
We’ll give the tenant notice in writing that you are demanding that they leave the property and pay any outstanding or arrears rent.
2) We’ll take the matter to court
If the problem tenant refuses to leave at stage 1 or fails to pay their arrears, we will make the initial filings with the courts to take matters further. Typically, this includes obtaining a court order for the eviction and for payment of rent arrears.
3) If necessary, we’ll instruct bailiffs
If your tenant refuses to comply with the court orders in step 2, we’ll instruct bailiffs who can legally remove them by force. It may also be possible for the bailiffs to seize some or all of the tenant’s movable property during eviction, to offset the rent arrears owed.
