Rent-to-own tenants may face several problems, including:
- Difficulty securing financing: Rent-to-own tenants may have a hard time getting approved for a mortgage, which can make it difficult for them to purchase the home at the end of the rent-to-own term.
- Lack of legal protection: Rent-to-own agreements are not always legally binding, which can leave tenants vulnerable to eviction or other issues.
- High costs: Rent-to-own tenants may be required to pay a higher rent than traditional tenants, as well as additional fees for the option to purchase the home.
Working with an experienced investor can help solve these problems by:
- Offering financing options: An experienced investor can help rent-to-own tenants secure financing through a variety of channels, including private lending or owner financing.
- Providing legal protection: An experienced investor will be able to draft legally binding rent-to-own agreements that protect the tenant’s rights and ensure that the agreement is enforceable.
- Negotiating reasonable terms: An experienced investor will be able to negotiate reasonable terms and conditions for the rent-to-own agreement, including the option price, the rent premium and the length of the term.
In addition, an experienced investor can help tenants understand the process and navigate any potential issues that may arise during the rent-to-own term.
