A lease with an option to buy is just like it sounds. It is a lease agreement, rental agreement, or whatever you want where the tenant has the 'option' to buy the home after a designated period time.
Lease options in Utah include 'option money' - a nonrefundable payment put in a trust account that will be returned to the tenant if they buy the house or given to the seller if they don't exercise the option. They also include a security deposit that will be completely refunded if the house is purchased, or left to the sellers discretion if the option is not exercised.
A portion of the rent in lease options can also be applied towards the down payment if the option is exercised. If it isn't exercised, then the landlord just keeps that money as the normal rent.
