1) you have to state detailed facts of your case . 

2) the clauses made in the lease deed have to be gone into . 

3) if there is provision in lease deed that after period of say 5 years lessee would have right to purchase the said property on payment of consideration then you can enforce the said contract . 

4) if lessor agrees to acceptance of payment by installments lessee can make payment in installments 

5) ) once property is sold lessee/purchaser  gets title deed to the property . 

6) lease cum sale deed is generally executed by housing Boards for sale of flats to various income groups

Usually lease cum sale Agreement is executed when government housing projects alot houses to eligible applicants so that they don't sell it for a profit to some one else .
Usually the lessee gets title to the property after the lease period is over provided it is so stipulated in the agreement.
The parties can determine the lease period. It can be 5 years,10 or 99 years depending on the nature of the lease.
It can be valid for sale of private land provided the stipulations are flawless and the agreement is registered.

1. The rights of the lessee flow out of the lease deed. The clauses incorporated in the lease deed are sacrosanct and cannot be deviated from by either the lessor or lessee. If there is a specific clause contained in the lease deed to the effect that the lessee shall, after the lease period is over, become the owner of the property leased out to him, the clause will take effect. In the absence of such a clause, lessee does not become the owner of the property.

2. There is no minimum or maximum lease period provided by the law. The lessor and lessee can by an agreement fix any period.

3. Lease can be for public or private land.

4. If there is an agreement between the lessee and lease period whereby the lessor agrees to take the consideration of the property through monthly, bi-annual or annual installments the same will be valid.

5. A lease deed can cover a private land also if the legal compliances have been made.
