What is the Definition of Lease Options?

Lease Options


Definition: Identifies whether any lease renewal options are included in the lease agreement. A renewal option allows the tenant to extend the lease for one or more prescribed periods of time and are frequently in short- and long-term leases. Renewal options are binding on the lessor, but allow the tenant to reach a decision in light of circumstances prevailing at the time of the renewal. Thus, they are generally considered favorable to the tenant, not the lessor.
