Find a local agent!

Let him or her guide you................ and explain the process to you step by step.

At the very least, you will be expected to show verification of employment (income high enough to afford the rent)......... and have your credit scores run........there may be other information that is required, but that depends on the individual landlord.

If you have a few hiccups in your past (financial hiccups), your agent can potentially help you overcome them.

For most leases (yes, I am in NJ, so this certainly varies state to state) you will be expected to give the first month's rent upfront, along with a security deposit (here it is usually 1.5 month's rent) my area, the tenant also (usually) pays the commission - often = to 1 month's rent.

Find out what is customary and usual where you are.

Best wishes........

Bev West answered:
Be very careful when doing a rent to own or lease option to purchase. Best advice is to keep the two transactions separate. If you are renting, rent. If you are wanting to buy, submit an offer. Most of the time they end up to where the buyer loses and doesn't get the house they have been paying rent on.

If you do choose to go this route, consult with an attorney.

Teri Zanella answered:
Quit Claim Deeds do not expire. Even if it is not filed at the time of signing, or not filed at all, the quitclaim deed is still legal. Though filing and recording this document is recommended and provides certain protections for the buyer, it is not a requirement for legality

You should still take steps to get the quitclaim deed recorded at the local county offices. Recording a deed provides possible legal protection should the ownership of the property be questioned at a later time. This step is highly recommended for simplification purposes, although it won't make any difference legally, provided the owner has the document available as proof if required.
