Benefits of Renting vs. Owning

The Components of a Rent-to-Own Transaction

The primary components of a rent to own transaction (also known as a lease to own transaction) are the rental term, the purchase price, the upfront deposit and the monthly rent credit. A Tenant or Renter (also referred to as “Tenant-Buyer”) and a Landlord (also referred to as “Landlord-Seller”) enter into a lease agreement (typically 12 to 36 months) that gives the tenant the option to purchase the home at a previously agreed upon price.
