Karen is Correct yo can only take over the mortgage and ownership IF the current owners and lender has an assumable loan (these are not common here) or you can lease with option to purchase.

However as karen stated it would be best have this looked over and directed to a real estate attorney.

If you need further assistance please contact me at your convenience.

This is definitely an issue best referred to a real estate attorney for their input.

You can, if the current mortgage lender lets you legally assume the mortgage. If you just start to pay their mortgage yourself and they sign a deed over to you or if you enter into a Lease Purchase contract, the current mortgage holder has the right to call in the entire principal balance due in full immediately.

I advise you to seek the advice of a real estate lawyer if you want to enter into a Rent-to-Own or Lease Purchase deal to make sure the contract is written to protect you.
