Many property owners and tenants don't understand terms lawsuits are filed.
Best have a Realtor represent you in this type of transaction.

Here are quick tips on finding some:
(1) Properties listed as lease-options. (Some, but not very many.)
(2) Properties listed both for rent and for sale. That's not specifically a lease-option, but the owner is signaling he's open to either. And a lease-option is when you rent now and buy later.
(3) Properties listed for rent that previously had been listed for sale.
(4) Properties listed for sale that previously had been listed for rent.
(5) Properties listed for sale that are vacant, especially those that have been on the market for more than 90 days.
(6) Properties listed for rent that are vacant, especially those that have been on the market for more than 90 days.
(7) Properties advertised on Craigslist and similar sites as lease-options.
(8) Advertise for lease-options on Craigslist and similar sites.
(9) Properties advertised for rent by owner on Craigslist and similar sites.
(10) Post flyers in supermarkets and stores.
(11) Direct mail (postcards or letters) to homes in an area you're interested in. (A Realtor can get owners' names from tax records, or in most cases you can do the research yourself online.)
(12) Direct mail to "absentee owners." A Realtor can get you the names of owners who live out of town or out of state. It's highly likely these owners are already renting their home. You're offering yourself as a renter with the bonus of a possible purchase.
(13) Contact investors who have lease-option properties. I know a lot of them. Some even have sophisticated websites that you can visit to look at available lease-option properties.
Those suggestions just scratch the surface. There are dozens of other ways to find lease-options.
Hope that helps.
There are many resources that you can use to locate a property for Lease or Lease Option:
1. Multiple Listing Service (MLS) - You will need a Realtor to gain access to this information, but don't worry it doesn't cost you a thing. The Home Owner / Landlord will be responsible for paying their fee to help you.
3. Local Newspaper or their Website
This is a direction tha many of today's recovering home owners are electing to take thus, the demand for this availability far exceeds the supply. Coupled with the basic fact that the vast majority of sellers are not interested in becoming landlords but getting out from under this responsibility.
Those lease option opportunities that are out there are often arrangements that the real estate professional eventually becomes aware of. Your best approach to finding one of these arrangements it to do so through a local realtor.
