All contracts should be carefully reviewed, including rent-to-own agreements. If you have discovered a house on the market that you want but cannot buy immediately, the same proposal will work, but if the house is already on the market, the benefits for the owner of the property to accept a rental proposal will be significantly reduced, unless he has trouble selling the house. The terms of the contract vary, but in most cases, the seller retains the option fee. The extra rent is usually delivered in one way out of two. First, the seller can deposit the additional rent into a protected trust account to be used for the acomptt. A second measure taken by some sellers is to put the sum of the additional amount paid on the purchase price of the house. How the additional rent is managed should be defined in the rent rental agreement. Although it is similar to an ordinary lease, leases have their own characteristics: the house you rent is perfect. Your kids have friends from the neighborhood, the schools are excellent and commuting to work is a breeze.
