less money than it says on the lease agreement three years ago.
You are probably leaving out information because
you need to know how much the house is. There needs to have been
a price established for this house if and when you decide to buy it during
the three year lease agreement. If not then I would negotiate the 5% commission
into the price. In other words if he wants $500,000 for the property with 5% commission
you can offer 490,000 with a 3% commission. anything can be negotiated
ESPECIALLY IN A BUYER'S MARKET.
I can represent you as a Buyer Representative on this deal.
I hope this helps
