Yes that's correct, it's best you seek advice from a lawyer in that situation.

You really need to contact an attorney. Realtors legally cannot give you any type of legal advise.

Only an attorney can give you advice on your situation.

A lease agreement with an option to purchase cannot be written by a Realtor. Only an attorney or the actual owner and lessee/optionee can write such an agreement. Because the law is complex in this area, it does require legal expertise to write a contract like that.

Normally, when an agreement is reached, it is difficult for only one party to change the agreement without the other party's consent. But there are exceptions.

Hi there,

You will need to take your lease agreement and take it to local lawyer. If you are using a realtor, check with him/her as well! There is a hot line for TREC that your realtor will have access to.

Good luck

If you have a final contract, it likely would take both of you to agree on any changes. If it is a simple question, the title company you were using may have a lawyer you can speak to about it. If it is complicated they may know a lawyer they can recommend to represent you. You can certainly choose your own lawyer, just be sure he or she is a "real estate lawyer".
