Rent to own is practically non existent . The market is on a rebound and owners won't take that risk when they can find healthy buyers.

First, disregard any comments from outside of New York State, however well-intentioned.

Real estate is governed by state laws, and they vary widely. There are lien theory states and title theory states, for example--huge difference. Furthermore, laws of agency vary in real estate transactions in various states; in some states (Georgia for ex) attorneys often work both sides of the deal. Agents who only know one state often don't understand how various the laws are.

That said--for NY, I think you're on track, I think you'll be fine, but you have a bit of a mess here, and it just takes time to clean it up. Unfortunately you have yourself a temporary part-time job nudging this process along.

This is a cautionary tale to consumers. This is the kind of thing that can happen when you hire an attorney who does not specialize in real estate--that's my guess about this. Real estate transactions are too complex in the New York City area, and even elsewhere in New York State, to be given to generalist lawyers. I am always happy to share attorney recommendations with my clients so this kind of thing can be avoided.
