If you haven't already heard, there are scams occurring by people who gain access to distressed properties. They take deposits and the monthly lease payments, then when the actual owner discovers what is going on, the scammed tenant has to move out, losing all the money they put up for the property.
Now, with that said. It's recommended that you have a real estate attorney review the terms of the lease. Be sure you completely understand the agreement because, you will be subject to these terms through the duration of the agreement.
Going back to my initial comment, if the deal is too good to be true, it probably is.
