Rent To Own Home Financing Toronto

September 25th, 2010

Rent-to-own is a real estate term relating to a real estate agreement which is composed of a rental lease and a purchase agreement where the tenant has an option to buy the property at a fixed price at a specified point of time in the future. It is also known as lease to purchase option, lease option, or a type of owner financing.

The lease resembles that of a typical rental lease where the home owner, the lessor, allows the other party, the lessee, to occupy the property for a monthly payment. The option to purchase the property stated the price at which the property is to be purchased and the time period during which the tenant is able to exercise the option.

Rent to own contracts become very popular during housing market downturns as property sellers may need to vacate the property before it can be sold, and landlords may use them as a way to find good tenants. The seller may attract the tenant by having a specified portion of the rent applied as a credit toward a down payment on the house, or may receive a sum of money for the option giving the tenant time to rebuild their credit if necessary.
