Yes you can lease with option to buy while fixing your credit. You'll need to provide seller-landlord letter from the mortgage broker stating that in a year or two you'll be able to buy.
Remember that you'll need to put some down payment when sign lease-to buy option and that money will be forfeited to the seller if you'll not execute this option to buy.
This option doesn't work with bank owned properties and short sales.
