Yes, be careful. There are a lot of rent to own scams. Make sure any payments are made to a third neutral party, like a local Title or Escrow company. Hopefully a local agent will help you out.

Chas, Hope you have a contract for your lease purchase option. I have seen many folks get screwed at the end of the term because they didn't have anything in writing. The home's worth can be evaluated with a licensed appraiser and that would take into account the amount of work that it needs and would only represent a snap shot of today's value based on comparable sales. You could also ask a realtor in your area to give you a broker's price opinion. Hope this helps.
