Marissa, there are several things to consider. Yes the credit score will play a role in doing a lease purchase. Often you can negotiate a portion of your lease amount to go toward the down payment on the home. Again this is totally up to the owner. As for getting loans, I would suggest you review your credit report, see where the number is and be sure the information is correct on the report. Also, you may find another lender more amiable if your score is marginal so check around. IF it is really low, certainly make your payments on time, pay off all the debt you can. And actively work to remove any mis information on the report. Good luck. ... more

I highly recommend checking with your local Better Business Bureau to see if any complaints have been filed against this company. It's free to go online to BBB web site and search any company. I recently checked a local siding company that had just given me an estimate for new siding. I found they had some complaints. I called the company to get their side because it didn't show any had been resolved. They refused to give any explaination or even blow some fluffy tale as to why it wasn't their fault. I found another company for the job. BBB is great. Someone told me you used to could go to the State Attorney General's office and check on companies. I never tried so I dn't know if that's really true.

You can see if there's an investor group in your area. This is a national investor group with local affiliated groups all over the country

There are probably many homes available with lease purchase options on the market already. Consult a Realtor in your area and I'm sure they'll be happy to find them for you. I've noticed an increase in lease purchase options available due to the current real estate climate. Good luck! ... more

Rebecca, the bank deals with whoever the borrowers are, whether you were living in the property or not at the time of the foreclosure, notice will be served.

There are better alternatives than foreclosure. If you know anybody who are in the same boat, please pass the word, I specialize in short sales, they deserve peace of mind.. I can assist them..make fresh starts.....
