In general, that's unlikely. I have negotiated leases where the lessee (tenant) will have the first option to purchase, or at least make or match an offer on the building they lease. The smaller the landlord the better chance I think you would have to get creative with lease terms like you mentioned above.

Yes, the lease to own terms on a commercial property are completely negotiable. Part of the monthly rent can go towards a downpayment as long as both parties agree. Anything and everything is negotiable and an experienced broker or brokers can suggest terms or conditions. Whatever the Lessor and Lessee agree to is workable. The attorneys can then protect the interest of their respective clients.
