Rarely will you find a "list". Lease-to-Own deals are created...more than they are found. I wrote an article in my blog about ways you can find a Lease-to-Own property with or without an Agent.
I do, however, suggest using a PROFESSIONAL Attorney who is familiar with and HAS successfully COMPLETED this type of paperwork/transaction before. The LAST thing you want to do is get into a situation where some things aren't spelled out well or to have a Real Estate Agent or Property Mgmt Company person say...... "Sure, I'm sure we can figure out how to put something like that together for you." <---doesn't really instill a whole lot of confidence for sure.
Best wishes & Laus Deo,
If a landlord applies all the rent tot he purchase, they then have to pay double taxes. They have to pay on the rent they "should have" recieved (calculated by the IRS), and then taxes on the sale price. (This is a simplified explanation, it is much more complicated, but you get the idea)
In addition, having all the rent go towards the purchase means there is no rent, it is just payments on the purchase price, so the tenant is really getting free living space.
These are just some of the misconceptions about "renting to own". If you are interested in legitimate "rent to own" property, then contact your Property Management company, or any of the Professional Property Managers locally and they will have some of their inventory that will qualify for such a program.
