I am Mary from Trulia Consumer Care. Unfortunately, we currently do not have listings for rent to own homes. You may try your luck though and search our website using the Keyword section of the search filter which can be found in the All Filters button. However, these listings are extremely rare.

Thank you for using Trulia!

You can find a duplex in that price range but the majority of Denton Rentals in that price range won't be listed on these sites (unfortunately). It helps if you have a friend in the area to let you know about available properties they see while driving. These homes are managed by the owner so you can get them for cheaper but they aren't always online and they go pretty quick. A friend of mine rented a 2/2 in DEC for $900/ month. Its doable. ... more

What does your contract say?
Usually there should be some provision.

Not sure what your agreement is, but in a mortgage situation, a lender probably couldn't foreclose on the property, however they would have the right to force-place coverage on the home and bill the buyer. Typically forced-coverage is way more expensive than coverage that you pick on your own, so that is usually a deterrent

You don't want coverage lapsing for even a day, because if something happens then you might be up $hit's creek. So time is of the essence to contact the buyer and, if necessary, take action to get it insured.

Susie Kay answered:
It is possible to find a rental property allowing 3 pets but will probably be hard. Most landlords allow up to 2 pets only. However, some may make exceptions because 2 of the dogs are small.

My best of luck to you!

I am looking into selling a 3 bedroom , 2 bath 3 living area in Denton. About 1900 sq feet. My kids are graduating this summer from UNT. The house is in perfect and fully updated. I spent a lot of time looking before I bought and I had a team of professionals helping me. You will find the houses very close to the university over priced and there is a very high amount of homes with foundation problems. What price range are you in?

ps. be careful using inspectors on the foundation. I also had an experienced general contractor look as well. I think the soil must be moving in that area.

Susie Kay answered:
Lenders look at the overall picture and not only credit score and income. They will look into your overall strength of being able to pay off the loan. You didn't mention whether you are currently working etc.

Let me know if you need a name or two lenders who can help.

Take care,
