I would contact an experienced local real estate professional to help with this answer.
Some owners are willing to lease but prefer not to make that known in MLS.
Be ready to pay a premium and choose an experienced attorney.

Actually, i own a multi family, so i understand how it can be from a landlords perspective. I live in my own home, after an exhaustive listing process 340 days, wish to find another home.

Hi Liam, Landlords like to see if the rent to own renter has the ability to purchase in the future. Have you been pre-approved? I can offer you my assistance with this process.

You are desperate!
Your Credit or Finances, or both, will not allow you to go the conventional route:
You need the Seller to help you out!

The Seller will know it, and you are going to pay dearly for this service:
There aren't too many altruistic Sellers out there.

The terms that can be written into a Lease/Option can be dangerous to you:
How long is the Option period?
How much money are you putting in to the Option?
What happens if you are not able to execute the Option?
How do you know what your financial situation will be 2-5 years from now?
How much is the rent in the meantime?
Who will be responsible for maintenance and repair in the meantime?
What will be the Market Value of the home in 2-5 years?
What will be the Selling price 2-5 years from now?

This is the Ultimate Caveat Emptor!
