GMann,
Are you sure about that? You can evice on a lease option but if you have a lease purchase it’s a lot tougher from my understanding becuase you the tenant has interest in the property.
If you sell on a lease option and use two contracts, one for the lease and one for the option, it’s much easier to evict.
Just so everyone is clear, there is a difference between a lease option and lease purchase.

What are the Pro’s And Con’s of each? To me it seems like cfd is superior even if you did have to foreclose.

I prefer a lease purchase because you can evict instead of foreclose. Some states will require a foreclosure process with a contract for deed. You also have the upside on a lease purchase if they don’t exercise the option.
