Rent to buy may also be called Lease to Buy; Renters pay a certain amount each month to live in the house, and at the end of an agreed upon period they have the option to buy the house. Each month of rent they pay is income for the seller, while a portion of it goes toward a down payment to eventually buy the home. Be aware that many contracts in rent-to-buy situations disallow late rental payments from counting toward an eventual sale. People with on time payment issues might lose equity when making late payments. Before you enter into this sort of arrangement talk long and hard with your real estate attorney, consider all the liabilities, and have a complete understanding of what's involved. Rent to buy can be helpful, but shouldn't be entered into by anyone who isn't serious about eventually buying the home. Seek legal advice from a licensed NY Attorney because this could end up costing you more money in fees, and above-market rent payments, and a complete loss of all up front fees. ... more
