How do I know if an Option to Purchase is not some type of way to scam me out of my house?

    Answered . The usual way is to do due diligence, preferably with the help of professionals (such as attorneys).

    Parts of the due diligence may be to check the credit worthiness of the buyer and drafting, reviewing, and recording whatever documents necessary to protect your interest in the real property.

    Before you sign anything with the buyer or accept any money, you likely should review your facts with attorneys whom you choose. Remember not to go with any attorney introduced to you by the buyer since that attorney may in fact represent the buyer or that attorney may be less than ethical
