What is a lease-purchase?
Often termed a “rent to own” — a lease purchase is nothing more than a sales agreement, with an extended closing date, and a lease to control between initial occupancy and closing.
You want the benefits of owning a home, but are unable to obtain financing through a conventional source today. You are convinced that you will be able to get the necessary financing after the passing of time. It would make sense for you to consider lease-purchase, because you may be able to trap the sales price at today’s terms, while gaining the stability of a contractual relationship. Usually, owners will be more flexible with your wishes to decorate and upgrade the home to your preferences, because you are willing to make a substantial commitment to purchase. Lease-purchase is not the right choice for all people. Make sure you get professional advice before entering into such an agreement. If you would like to discuss your situation, contact us for a confidential, no-fee consultation.
