It goes to pay the first month’s rent. The security deposit is held by the seller to cover any damages or apply towards past due rents. The option money would be lost as non-refundable option consideration.

If the tenant doesn’t pay a month’s rent you serve notice, then evict if they don’t cure and sue for any rents due. Then find a new tenant/buyer and start the process over again.

Can someone please explain to me? When we are doing lease options as the Seller and collect an Option Fee,plus the security deposit, and 1 months rent. Where does 1 months rent go to…is it applied toward the 1st months rent or kept by the seller possibly to be used in an emergency
situation . EXAMPLE: tenant stops paying rent or something.
