Why rent to own if you may qualify to buy and own. Most rent to own are risky and want 10-15% down which is non refundable as well as annual increase in rent until you qualify. You may already qualify to buy with FHA financing. FHA financing allows old collections on your reports.
If you have low fico score between 500-579 you may consider 10% down FHA and a minimum 580 fico score may consider 3.5% down FHA. If you have a minimum 620 fico score you may consider 3% down conventional.
Your scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the purchase.
You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. Lenders can not discriminate by past criminal history. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in TX. Check out the RENT vs BUY web reference link below...... more

As a Co-Borrower on a mortgage, that mortgage would be counted as part of your personal overall DTI (Debt To Income) ratios. If you are not occupying the home and can show that someone else is occupying the home and has been making the monthly payments then some Lenders will qualify you without that debt.
