Of the eight people, only Otto Frank survived the war. Anne died when she was 15 years old in Bergen-Belsen, from typhus. The exact date of her death is unknown and has long been believed to be in early March, a few weeks before the prisoners were liberated by British troops in April 1945. However, new research in 2015 indicated that Anne may have died as early as February.

HI Linda,

I would recommend not renting with the option to buy, renting is ok, but when you include the buying option, the owner will ask for option money up front to hold the home for a fixed agreed purchase price.

If you do not meet the option purchase time frame or even if you do the option money is just that option money to hold the home i.e.. if you gave owner 5,000.00 option money to hold the home for you, owner gets to keep the money, it will not be a credit given back if you buy the home.

Just like the stock market when you buy a option the money to purchase the option is not given back to you.
